The cyber fitness of Aussie small business
Monday 26 October 2020
2:00pm – 3:00pm
About the event
Little is understood about the challenges faced by Australian small business owners when it comes to the security of their business. 97% of Australian businesses are small, really small, with fewer than 20 staff. Explore small business attitudes towards cyber security and learn about the path forward for building cyber fitness in the most vulnerable businesses.
While small businesses have had to fight for survival during the COVID-19 crisis, the unprecedented period of digital adoption has left many exposed to threats they are unprepared for. As Australia looks towards the future again, there has never been a more important time than now to understand the challenges this sector faces.
To help inform the creation of better support for small businesses, AustCyber, Deakin University, RMIT University and Cynch Security embarked on one of Australia’s biggest collaboration projects to gather valuable data and research into this topic.
This session will share the outcomes of the study and explore key insights for organisations and individuals looking to help small businesses manage this significant, growing threat.
