Protect your business against cyber threats 

Protect your business against cyber threats

Cyber risk is one of the leading risks for Australian small to mid-sized businesses, with companies employing between 1 – 250 people the most at risk.  The average cost of a cyber incident in Australia is in excess of $250,000, so it is imperative you protect your business from these emerging risks. 

Cyber incidents can result in thousands of dollars in remediation costs, customer notification costs, hefty regulator fines, extortion costs or being sued by customers or employees for the loss of personal information – and unfortunately small businesses are one of cyber criminals favourite targets. 

A cyber incident can be as simple and innocent as attaching the wrong file to an email or using an image on your website which has been copyrighted by another entity to more complicated situations such as a hacker attack and loss of customer information.
