CYBERSECURITY is one of the leading risks for businesses in Australia with estimated costs to the Australian economy of more than $3 billion a year.
CYBERSECURITY IS NOT JUST A 'TECHNICAL ISSUE', BUT A 'BUSINESS ISSUE' AS A CYBER ATTACK COULD POTENTIALLY LEAD TO A BRAND AND REPUTATIONAL ISSUE WITH EFFECTS ON THE BOTTOM LINE.
The threats are the same regardless of size, industry and type of organisation - no one is immune.
The cybersecurity threat is real, affecting local businesses through acts of ransom ware, payroll hacking, phishing and IP theft.
No doubt that there is a lot to take on board, for organisations, business owners and directors alike
as the topic is complex and ongoing.
It requires different levels and areas of expertise, from inside and outside the organisation,
engaging staff as well as core suppliers.
Crisis plans have to be communicated and practised throughout the organisation.
