By November 21, 2022December 7th, 2022eBook, Featured Article

Cyber attacks are rising and everyone is vulnerable. One in three Australians are expected to be impacted by a cyber attack. We need to take more responsibility of our employees personal phones, computers and networks – home and work to ensure all devices are up to date and secure.

As a result, cyber threats are a massive hazard and with the increase in artificial intelligence (AI) and automation, cyber attacks are easier to carry out. Effective corporate cyber security is an issue many businesses are facing today and there can be a lot of risk involved not having a comprehensive strategy for protecting customers’ information. Protection has never been more critical.

Coraggio Member, Martin Boyd from Vertex Cyber Security shares, “Now is a great time to start thinking about improving your Cyber Security but choosing who to talk to or where to start can feel daunting. We recommend having a conversation with a good Cyber company like Vertex to understand your options and figure out the most appropriate next step for your business. This is because Cyber Security can be confusing with options such as Penetration Testing (Ethical Hacking to find your vulnerabilities), ISO27001 certification, Cyber Security Audits, Cyber Security Policies, Firewalls, AntiVirus, Managed Cyber Security, Cyber Training, Cyber Security Products and the list goes on.”
