IRAP Assessments

Collaborate with Australia’s leading specialists in IRAP Assessments to safeguard your organisation from prevailing and emerging cyber threats. Central to our mission is the rigorous assessment of your security infrastructure to manage risks effectively – before they are leveraged by cyber adversaries. Security gaps are potential entry points for malicious actors; at Vectra, we help you fortify those breaches, ensuring the integrity and protection of your data. In compliance with the Australian Government’s security standards, Vectra’s IRAP Assessment services are meticulously designed to meet the comprehensive requirements of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), enhancing your organisation’s resilience against cyber threats.

What is an IRAP Assesment?

Engaging an IRAP Assessor can offer significant advantages for organisations, as they are independent specialists in conducting Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessments. IRAP assessors have been trained and accredited by the Australian government to offer expert guidance on information security issues.

By engaging an IRAP Assessor, organisations can:

  • Ensure compliance with government mandates: IRAP assessments are compulsory for government bodies and commercial organisations that provide services to the Australian government.
  • Obtain an independent and objective evaluation: IRAP assessors deliver a neutral and objective analysis of an organisation’s security stance, assisting in the identification of potential security risks and vulnerabilities.
  • Enhance security posture: IRAP assessors can offer recommendations to improve an organisation’s security posture, thereby boosting protection against cyber threats.
  • Remain abreast of the latest security standards: IRAP assessors keep up to date with the most recent security standards and guidelines, including those issued by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).
  • Increase customer confidence: By engaging an IRAP Assessor, organisations can show their customers that they are serious about information security and have taken measures to secure their data.

Our IRAP Assessors are accessible to any organisation, including those not directly affiliated with the Australian government.
