CYBER SECURITY

“Hackers hone their skills while consumers remain complacent” -Symantec, November 2016 press release.

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is the practice of protecting systems, networks and programs from cyber threats

Why is Cyber Security important?

While this digital era offers enormous opportunity for all of us, this increased connectivity is accompanied by greater exposure to cybercriminal activity.

Due to our nation’s relative wealth and high use of technology, Australia is an attractive target for serious and organised cybercrime syndicates. Due to the possible lucrative financial gains for these organised crime syndicates, businesses are now facing an evolving threat landscape where attack types change daily.

As these cyber threats continue to increase in frequency, scale and sophistication it is now essential for organisations to implement effective and sound cyber security practices to effectively protect digital assets and meet increasing compliance obligations.

Common types of Cyber Threats

“Hackers Hone their Skills While Consumers Remain Complacent,” Symantec, in a November 2016 press release.

In 2018, The largest source of attacks on businesses have been incidents involving phishing, malware, ransomware, compromised or stolen credentials and hacking by other means[1].

What this means for your business…

A cyber security incident has the potential to create devastating and lasting impact on a business.

In conjunction with direct financial loss and loss of business productivity, once a company’s security has been breached, repairing the relationship and trust between the business and its customers can be very difficult.

Globally, national governments have intensified their focus on cyber security and data protection. New regulations and greater privacy requirements have recently taken effect in 2018 which now mandate Australian organisations to report notifiable data breaches. This has placed a constant pressure on businesses to ensure they employ active security compliance practices.
