Lacework EditorialFebruary 14, 20243 min read

With breaches becoming more frequent and impactful, businesses across Australia need verified and reliable security measures to protect their data in the cloud. Lacework is proud to announce that our cloud security platform has successfully completed the Infosec Registered Assessors Program (IRAP), marking a pivotal moment in our commitment to advancing cloud security standards.

The path to IRAP completion

The journey to IRAP completion was rigorous, and required a deep dive into our security controls and processes. Conducted by Australian Signals Directorate (ASD)-certified IRAP assessors from CyberCX, this independent assessment scrutinised our platform’s ability to meet and exceed stringent security standards. Accomplishing this underscores our dedication to providing secure cloud environments, and allows businesses to innovate confidently.

Why IRAP matters

In an increasingly sophisticated era of cyber threats, successfully completing IRAP exemplifies trust and reliability. Developed by ASD, IRAP’s rigorous evaluation framework ensures that systems meet the highest security standards. For Lacework, this is a testament to our unwavering commitment to security excellence. Our platform’s IRAP completion provides businesses with a critical tool for evaluating their security posture, ensuring they can meet their unique requirements with the utmost confidence.

A response to the cybersecurity imperative

Recent cybersecurity incidents such as the Medibank data breach that compromised the personal information of millions, highlight the critical need for enhanced security measures. Governments are responding by introducing sanctions against both individuals and companies involved in significant breaches, which makes this achievement timely. IRAP offers a scalable, reliable solution to help organizations strengthen their cyber defenses and hold them accountable to higher security standards. This aligns perfectly with national cybersecurity strategies and initiatives. 

Our “private by design” philosophy

At the heart of the Lacework approach is our “private by design” philosophy, reflecting our belief that privacy and security are not mutually exclusive. This ethos ensures that our platform not only meets the technical demands of cloud security but also prioritises the privacy and confidentiality of customer data. Today, the highest level of security should be the norm, not the exception.

Looking ahead

Completing the IRAP assessment positions Lacework as a leader in providing complete cloud security solutions. Our platform’s advanced threat detection capabilities, supported by our Australian data centre, offer comprehensive security solutions across various cloud environments, including AWS, Azure, and GCP. As we look to the future, our focus remains on protecting the digital assets of government and enterprise sectors, particularly critical infrastructure and assets.
