A new partnership between the cyber security and secure cloud provider and Command Hub was announced this week, with the two companies combining forces to deliver CrisisHub, a new emergency platform designed to arm businesses with the tools to deal with the consequences of a cyber attack.

The new platform has Australian businesses and government agencies in mind, giving organisation stakeholders involved in the incident, at any level, a secure environment to deal with and respond to the incident in what AUCloud calls a “one stop shop” in communication and collaboration.

“Amidst the chaos of a disaster or a sophisticated cyber attack, CrisisHub stands ready 24/7, ensuring that key documents, including crisis, and businesses continuity plans are not just available but are also organised logically for swift access and action,” AUCloud chief executive officer Peter Maloney said.


“Often during a data breach or major system failure, businesses lose the ability to access everything from their systems, documents, emails to phone contacts. If your business or organisation suffers from a ‘crypto lock’ cyber attack, often you won’t be able to access key files and planning documents required to effectively respond to an attack.”

According to AUCloud, CrisisHub offers organisations and government agencies an “air-gapped” solution (i.e. a solution that has no connection to the internet or any other device to ensure security) to allow those involved to quickly communicate a message through a secure, encrypted messaging platform.

“Often, a team of experts including insurers, public relations professionals, lawyers, and forensic teams will be required to help respond and navigate during a crisis. It is important that first responders have a safe place to immediately communicate, collaborate, and access critical materials to official respond in a timely fashion,” Maloney added.

Despite the system being air-gapped, locked down and secure, as documents are hosted on AUCloud’s secure sovereign cloud, organisations and their management teams have the ability to search, annotate, and manage documents to ensure that critical documents and information can be accessed easily and quickly.

“In the face of a crisis, the last thing an organisation needs is to struggle with accessing critical documents or coordinating their response team,” Maloney said.

“CrisisHub is designed to eliminate these challenges, providing a secure, reliable, and intuitive platform for crisis management.

“By ensuring that teams have the information and tools they need at their fingertips, we’re helping organisations not just to manage crises but to overcome them.

“AUCloud is not just offering a product but is proposing a new standard for how organisations prepare for, manage and recover from crises.”
