For small businesses, we know the lead-up to Christmas can be a busy and chaotic few weeks. It kicks off with Black Friday and doesn’t let up until after Australia Day.
During the festive period, cyber criminals are known to launch targeted attacks hoping you are too busy to spot the scam.
Even though you might be focussed on packing extra orders or preparing for a holiday closure, cyber security is a real risk to small businesses. In the past 12 months, there’s been a 23 per cent increase in cyber attacks on small businesses. What’s more, the average cost of cyber crime per incident rose by 14 per cent from 2021-22, to $46,000 for small businesses.
That’s why Cyber Wardens is launching a festive season small business guide to cyber security. The guide is jam-packed with practical tips and quick wins that help you keep cyber safe this festive season and beyond.
What’s inside the guide:
