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.
