Qlik Completes Australian Cybersecurity Assessment Program

Cloud data and analytics software vendor Qlik has announced completion of a security assessment program, the Infosec Registered Assessors Program, created by the Australian Cyber Security Centre.

The program endorses entities to provide security assessment services. Qlik has completed the classification at the ‘Protected’ level.

The title enables Australian government and regulated industries to use Qlik’s suite of data and analytics tools to handle more trusted information.

IRAP independently assesses system security to align with Australian government policies and guidelines, evaluating both software and organisational policies. The program plays a pivotal role in reinforcing the Australian Signals Directorate’s Essential Eight standards.

Australia’s Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR), which has used Qlik’s solutions for data-driven decision-making and program management since 2016. Owing to the assessment, that agency can now further integrate Qlik solutions.  

“We use Qlik’s data analytics platform every day to influence government policy, inform operational decisions and support program management,”says DEWR’s Qlik Engagement Team Director John Carroll.

“Accurate data allows us to make informed decisions that support all Australians and to communicate with our stakeholders more effectively. This new classification further propels our move to the cloud, allowing us to future-proof our operations and help deliver a best-in-class employment infrastructure.

Qlik’s APAC Senior Vice President, Geoff Thomas,  says the completion of the assessment was a testament to the vendor’s dedication to maintaining high cybersecurity standards. 

“This classification as Protected Level reflects Qlik’s commitment to providing secure, reliable data solutions to streamline and optimise processes for government agencies,” he says.
