“Malicious cyber activity is increasing in frequency, scale, in sophistication and in its impact. It’s vital that all Australian organisations are alert to this threat and take steps to protect their own networks.” – Linda Reynolds, Australian Minister for Defence
As we wrote last week, the Australian Government has warned of a sustained cyber targeting of Australian governments and organisations by a sophisticated state-based actor.
The tactics and techniques being used seek to leverage a number of initial access vectors, particularly the exploitation of public-facing infrastructure. Other vulnerabilities include exploitation of a deserialisation vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), a 2019 SharePoint vulnerability and the 2019 Citrix vulnerability.
This comes at a time when Australian organisations are already facing increased cybersecurity risks with many workplaces having moved rapidly to remote working arrangements, potentially exposing new cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
To update you on these potential threats to your cyber assets and business continuity, as well as the simple solutions available to mitigate these risks, we invite you to join our next July Cybersecurity Virtual Event on 17 July 2020 at 12.30 pm.
How it Works
Events are conducted as 1 hour webinars, with time for questions. Attendance is free and open to clients and the public, though the events are tailored towards leaders of small-to-medium enterprise and not-for-profits. One had this to say following our May 2020 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
As a complimentary offering for attendees, we’ll be running a Dark Web ID Scan on your organisation’s domain prior to the event and will 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.
