We mitigated over 5,438 cybersecurity threats to our managed cybersecurity customers last year, and we expect this figure will rise in 2021.
2020 saw Australia experience a record frequency and severity of cybersecurity attacks on individuals, businesses and Government, such as a 44% increase in the most common form of cyber attack, phishing. As we head in to 2021, we predict this trend will continue.
[In the next five years] Cyber criminals will continue to invest in artificial intelligence to increase the sophistication, frequency and effectiveness of attacks, particularly by leveraging social engineering. Artificial intelligence will use many data points to correlate information about you to try and trick you into giving up passwords, clicking on something or taking an action you otherwise wouldn’t. The trends of increasing frequency and sophistication show no signs of slowing down.

Attendance is free and open to clients and the public, with the event tailored towards business managers and executives of small-to-medium enterprise and not-for-profits. One such attendee had this to say following a recent event:
“The value-added awareness the event provided on cybercrime was significant, let alone information about the back office systems now available to combat this growing trend.”

Free Dark Web ID Scan and Security Checklist
Complimentary for attendees, we’ll run a Dark Web ID Scan on your organisation’s domain prior to the event and provide you with the resulting report, along with our 15 Point Security Checklist.
Dark Web ID Scans help identify instances where a user’s email address, username or password has been stolen and published on the Dark Web. When this occurs, it represents an increase in the threat level to an organisation.
