Now More Than Ever, It Is Critical For Businesses To Protect Themselves From Cybercrime
Are You Aware Of The Cyber Threats?
Cybercrime doesn’t just affect big business and government agencies. Small companies have subtle vulnerabilities which hackers frequently expose in order to breach your systems. Without an all-encompassing approach to cybersecurity, your business is at risk.
Understand Your Vulnerabilities and Overcome Them
Did you know that 46% of SMBs (small and medium businesses) do not have a response plan in the event of a cyber security attack? This is a concerning statistic when considering that the average data breach costs the exploited business $53,970. Most SMB’s face the same six problems when it comes to cyber security:
- Lack of Time
- Lack of Budget
- Human Error
- Outdated Tech
- Changing / Evolving Threats
If you hadn’t even considered these issues, it doesn’t mean that you have neglected your business. Cyber security is a fast-paced, continually evolving field. It is hard to be aware of the problems when they change so frequently.
Implementing the Essential 8
The Essential 8 is a mitigation framework designed by the Australian Cybersecurity Council (ACSC) to protect businesses from cyberattackers.
The Essential 8 recommend security measures to be taken in the following areas:
- Application control
- Patch applications
- Configuring Microsoft
- Office Macro settings
- User application hardening
- Restrict administrative privileges
- Patch operating systems
- Multi-factor authentication
- Regular backups
We specialise in implementing the Essential 8 in businesses just like yours, and we’d love to help you too.
Or, if you’d like to learn more about the Essential 8, we’ve further explained it in this article.
