Cyber crime and privacy breaches are critical business risks

There are serious consequences for businesses that do not adequately safeguard sensitive information, money held on trust or their information infrastructure.

SMEs are particularly vulnerable, with a leading study reporting that in 2018, 67 percent of small businesses experienced a cyber attack and 58 percent experienced a data breach in a 12 month period.

Human error within organisations is also a key cause of privacy breaches, accounting for 33% of breaches notified under the Australian Notifiable Data Breaches regime.
