Securiti announces a $75M Series C Funding RoundView
Per a Cisco report in 2018, Australian businesses receive nearly 5,000 cyber threats daily. These businesses include supermarkets, banks, social media sites, and online shopping sites. Naturally, these sites collect and maintain data on millions of their users, further exasperating the threats cyberattacks pose to businesses in Australia.
With that in mind, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) issued a new prudential standard, known as the Prudential Standard CPS 234 Information Security (Prudential Standard CPS 234), to ensure organizations develop a more robust and resilient information security infrastructure to deal with cybersecurity threats. This standard applies to all ‘APRA-regulated entities’ as defined under Section 2 of the Prudential Standard CPS 234.
The Prudential Standard CPS 234 encourages organizations to take necessary measures to protect the data they hold proportionate to the sensitivity of the data. All APRA-regulated entities were expected to comply with the Prudential Standard CPS 234 by 1st July 2019.
Securiti offers organizations access to features such as PI data discovery, data categorization, documented accountability, security controls, and AI-process automation, among others. These can aid an organization’s APRA Prudential Standard CPS 234 compliance efforts significantly.

Organizations can implement various information security policies and capabilities, and can regularly monitor and update them based on changes in the organizations’ data processing activities, adoption of new security protocols, or changes to the types of data categories collected or processed.
Deliver highly accurate and granular auto-classification of datasets and data labeling using sensitive data intelligence. Enrich Asset identification and classification with classification levels, sensitivity labels, or other organization specific data.
Datasets can be classified based on their purpose and data catalogs can be enriched with security meta tags to help you identify appropriate security controls based on data sensitivity.
Sections: 21, 22
Have effective security measures and protocols in place to protect all data while ensuring access to sensitive data is restricted to authorized personnel only. Establish a centralized security framework to enforce and manage policies around accessing a resource (file, folder, database, table, column etc) for a particular set of users and/or groups.
These security controls can be tailored to meet any specific requirements under information security laws that an organization is subject to.
Sections: 32, 33, 34
Organizations can automate security and privacy controls, initiate assessments and internal audits to discover gaps in security controls, and determine the overall security posture of datasets.
This helps organizations in choosing appropriate mitigation measures and security controls depending on the nature of data to be protected and its sensitivity.
Sections: 23, 24, 25, 35, 36
Have a robust and effective automated incident response plan in place that kicks into action as soon as any suspected activity is detected across your database. Automation of compliance actions and breach notifications helps your organization meet the regulatory breach notification timeline of 72 hours.
Furthermore, track all remediation activities and impacted users to ensure that detailed audit trails are maintained for documentation and future insights.
Sections: 16, 22, 28
Evaluate your vendors’ and third parties’ information security practices to ensure they are fully compliant with the necessary obligations provided under Prudential Standard CPS 234.
A single repository for the documentation of all third-party and vendor responses ensures all correspondence is maintained adequately with full automation of any follow-ups.
