Protecting contractors, sole traders and small businesses across Australia
According to recent studies, the cost of cyber crime globally will exceed $6 trillion annually over the coming years. The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) stated in their recent Threat Report that they had identified 47,000 cyber incidents over the previous financial year.
The Small Business Cyber Security Best Practice Guide published by the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman notes that small business is the target of 43% of all cyber crimes. Yet an astonishing 33% of businesses with fewer than 100 employees don’t take proactive measures against cyber security breaches and 87% of small businesses believe their business is safe from cyber attack because they use antivirus software alone.
