Why Do You Need Cyber Security?

The importance of cyber security underpins many business operations. We spend a considerable number of resources protecting our physical assets, and it is just as important to ensure that sensitive data, including personal information, financial information, and intellectual property are also secured. In its 2020-21 report, the Australian Cyber Security Centre recorded:

  • over 67,500 cybercrime reports, a 13% increase over the previous year
  • self-reported losses from cybercrime totalling over $33 Billion
  • nearly 500 ransomware cybercrime reports, an increase of 15% over the previous year[1]

The impact of a cyber security breach or a threat to information and operational data can be devastating. Fortifying your cyber security measures to repel threats, fraud and theft is equally as important as backing up data to ensure against any data loss. Common cyber threats include

  • Malware, a malicious software that is designed to cause harm
  • Phishing scams, dubious emails with the intent of deceiving recipients
  • Ransomware, a specific type of malware that encrypts your files until a sum of money is paid

We understand that sometimes you do not have the resources to spend on trying to understand the complexities of how the Internet works or establishing complicated responses to potential risks.
