Office Macro Settings
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) has recommended businesses Configure Microsoft Office Macro Settings to minimize the risk of cyber-attacks. Hackers can use macro viruses, or malicious macros, to infiltrate a computer network and run malicious code (malware). Macros enter a network via Microsoft Office documents which have been downloaded online, attached to emails or via infected files transferred from one computer network to another.
Whilst programs have the option to disable all macros, Microsoft macros are designed to automate repetitive tasks in Microsoft Office programs; specifically, Excel and Word. This means many businesses rely on macros to operate efficiently on a daily basis.
Smart configuration of macros is therefore key to ensuring businesses minimize risk, whilst maximizing productivity. Configuration of Microsoft Office Macro Settings is included in our Cybersecurity Management System (CSMS) packages from the GOLD level up.
