About us

Our Vision

At Cyber Wardens we are on a mission to ensure Australian small business operate in a cyber safe environment.

By bolstering the cyber capabilities of people who work in small business, we make it easier for small business to increase their cyber posture to prevent attacks and be resilient to them. Our goal is simple. Cyber criminals consider Australia ‘closed for business.’

A national initiative, leveraging COSBOA’s grassroots infrastructure and reputation, to change the behaviours of Australia’s 2.3 million small businesses, and create a new Cyber Warden frontline.

Cyber Wardens will be the online version of first aid officers or fire safety wardens, who can prevent, prepare, fight and help recover from a cyber attack or the theft of customer data or intellectual property.

Just like we protect ourselves by locking up our businesses and homes at night, the Cyber Wardens program will give small business the skills to shut our digital doors to lurking cyber threats.

Anyone can be a Cyber Warden

Small business owners

Employees of SME businesses

Cyber Warden training simplifies cyber security to help your business. No buzz, no jargon just practical and quick wins to help you lock up your business and keep cyber criminals out.
