Get a FREE Cyber Security Assessment for your Small Business

I run a small business and I make use of the many benefits of the internet while running it. But according to Australian Cyber Security Magazine, a quarter (25%) of Australian Small to Medium Businesses would not survive the financial and reputational damage of a significant privacy breach.

The research, conducted by Zoho, which sought to understand cyber awareness amongst Australia’s SMBs, found that while awareness is growing, too many businesses are unprepared and unequipped to deal with a privacy breach or cyber incident. 

Based on the research of 784 Australian SMBs in industries including retail, professional services, technology, education and manufacturing, 24% said they would not survive the financial impact of a privacy breach, while 23.7% said they could not recover from the reputational hit. –

To assist SMBs across Australia we have enlisted the support of Harvey Norman’s ‘Technology For Business’, who are offering 50 FREE CYBER SECURITY ASSESSMENTS for Small Businesses. These assessments are conducted via 15 minute phone call and once done you will better understand the Cyber Security risks presented to your business.
