What is Cybercrime ?

Some of the most common types of Cybercrime are:
  • Phishing attacks
  • Identity theft
  • Ransomware on malware
These can all expose your business to data theft, extortion or even business failure. Cybercrime is becoming one of the biggest risks for businesses to mitigate as cybercriminal groups becoming increasingly sophisticated and organised with streamlined methods for targeting Australians.

Cyber scam - have you been hacked?

It takes a hacker 4 minutes to access a network through an email attack, business email compromise (BEC). On average it takes 286 days before its detected and 80 days for damage control.

In those 286 days what have the hackers seen, stolen or controlled? What potential liability will you incur? Will your business reputation be tarnished or worst still, fatally damaged?

It is estimated that one in three Australian adults have been affected by cybercrime.
Business email compromise (BEC) is a form of targeted phishing, or spear phishing. Criminals target organisations and employees to scam them out of money or goods or trick them into revealing important business information. BEC continues to present a major threat to Australian businesses, especially as more Australians work remotely. Anyone can fall victim to email compromise. If someone gains access to your account, they can access to sensitive information.
