Cyber Security Tips Post COVID 19- How to safely manage ‘The New Normality’

Cybercriminals are pivoting their online criminal methods to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic. How to manage the “new Normality”



As the world continues to deal with the economic and operational challenges from the global COVID-19 pandemic, cybercriminals are pivoting their online criminal methods to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On average each month, the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) receives about 4,400 cybercrime reports through ReportCyber and responds to 168 cyber security incidents.

Working partly from home in combination with a few dedicated office days has become ‘the new norm’ for many professionals in the aftermath of this pandemic.

Working outside a secured office and technology environment has specific cyber security risks, including targeted cybercrime. When compromised, unauthorised access to your stored information can impact what matters most to you: your data, your cash flow and – if your clients or suppliers are affected- your reputation.

 In this webinar we aim to answer any questions you have regarding how you can safeguard yourself against a data loss and strengthen your cyber risk resilience.

 We will talk about five simple yet remarkably effective actions that you can take to immediately improve your cyber security and -even better- that won’t break the bank.

 You will leave this webinar feeling more in control of how to manage the uncertainty that comes when doing business online, and while there is no ‘one- solution- fits- all’ there are some valuable standards and tools that help you safeguard your data – protecting your revenue and your reputation, as Lost data means lost trust from your clients.
