Blueprint for Secure Cloud

The Blueprint for Secure Cloud (previously known as the Protected Utility Blueprint) is an online tool to support the design, configuration and deployment of collaborative and secure cloud and hybrid workspaces, with a current focus on Microsoft 365.

The Blueprint provides better practice guidance, configuration guides and templates covering risk management, architecture and standard operating procedures developed as per the controls in ASD’s Information Security Manual (ISM). While the Blueprint is primarily developed for government organisations, private sector organisations may also find it a useful resource.

If you have any questions or suggestions about the Blueprint, or to request targeted technical advice, please get in touch at or on GitHub.
