"We don't have any data worth stealing"
"We are too small to worry about cyber"
Cyber crime is a concerning and increasing trend with 30% of Australians impacted in 2018.
Small to medium businesses (SME's) in particular have become a real target for cyber criminals. Unfortunately, many small business owners do not feel they are at risk of cyber-attack and therefore do not have the right precautions in place to protect themselves and their business.
Cyber Check.Me has been developed by the ECU Security Research Institute (ECUSRI) in partnership with the Cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup, North Metro TAFE and AustCyber to provide SME's and the community the basic precautions they can take to protect themselves against the loss of time, money, private information and reputational damage as a result of cyber-attack.
Cyber Check.Me aims to provide cyber security information and un-biased advice to local businesses and community members through a series of pop-ups resourced by ECU Cyber students and ECUSRI employees at local business events/forums and locations within the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo business districts.
One cyber attack on your business is all it takes to have serious financial consequences and impacts to your business and its reputation.
Read our hints and tips to help protect yourself and your business.
The Cyber Check.Me team are offering free 1-on-1 cyber consultations for small to medium businesses in November at the City of Wanneroo library and the City of Joondalup library. Bookings and session availability can be found here.
