Like most other businesses owners, you’ve no doubt taken advantage of the greater efficiencies that technology has allowed. Customer records, employee data, day-to-day operational details and much more are now easily accessible and transferrable digitally. But along with the convenience of the digital age comes a significant risk to your business.
Cybercrime is now one of the biggest risks faced by all Australian businesses, regardless of size. Increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals are able to exploit the vulnerabilities of your systems or networks to gain unauthorised access to data, download malware or attack a computer or website causing it to overload and stop operating (known as Denial of Service).
For your business this can mean the loss of data and systems, a threat to your intellectual property, putting your customers’ personal information at risk and cause major damage to the reputation of your company.
