Australia has reported the biggest rise in cyber attacks than any other country mainly because cyber criminals are attracted by our comparative wealth.
Ransomware attacks, which make data and IT systems unusable until those targeted pay a ransom demand, have increased dramatically
It doesn’t matter how big or small your business or whether you hold sensitive information, ransomware attacks do not discriminate
Nowadays cyber security has become a vital part of protecting any business or organisation.
Some tips to help guard against attack include:
It is crucial that your internet trafﬁc passes through a modern advanced Firewall. We advocate a combined gateway security anti-virus and other intrusion preventions to eliminate all types of threats.
Business Continuity and Back Up
Implementing data backup and business continuity should be a priority for any organisation to successfully respond to threats such as natural disasters, as well as cyber-attacks and data breaches. Any effective disaster recovery plan requires superior data protection, secure storage and instant data recovery.
Endpoint devices, including desktops, notebooks and tablets need the best possible protection too as cyber threats are often directed at the users of these devices on business networks.
Emails-targeting unsuspecting employees continue to be the major cause of cyber attacks on business in Australia. It’s important to have the best email security protection to guard against cyber criminals.
In some cases, it costs businesses much more to recover from cyber-attacks or virus infections than it would to implement preventative security measures.
