IRAP (Australia)


What is IRAP?

The Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) is an Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) initiative to provide high-quality information and communications technology (ICT) security assessment services to the government.

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) within the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) produces the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM). The purpose of the ISM is to outline a cybersecurity framework that organizations can apply to protect their information and systems from online threats.

The ISM consists of more than 600 security controls which define security requirements in more than 80 areas such as:

  • Cybersecurity incidents
  • System hardening
  • Vulnerability management
  • Patching
  • Cryptography
  • Network design
  • Application development

IRAP Assessment at Akamai

Akamai is assessed annually by an independent auditor for compliance with the IRAP Security Controls defined in the ISM.

Akamai’s first IRAP assessment was conducted at the beginning of 2019. The assessment covered both Akamai’s production and corporate network environments, and the resulting compliance assessment report was completed by NJOY Security on April 8, 2019.

The Executive Summary of Akamai’s IRAP Security Assessment and the related letter from the IRAP Official Assessor is available to Akamai customers and partners subject to nondisclosure agreements with Akamai. Please contact your Akamai account team for more information.
