Why you need to attend this webinar
COVID-19 has accelerated remote working and most businesses have had to adapt to this working model even if it was unfamiliar.  Remote working brings an increased risk of identity theft and corporate attack. Cybercriminals can mine for employees' identities through:

  • Phishing scams
  • Password credential theft
  • Other advanced tactics

Cybercriminals can enter the network under the guise of a legitimate login and then wreak havoc. There has been substantial growth in ransomware, fake apps and targeted phishing scams with over 2000 security incidents in Australia in 2020.

  • During the 12months from July 2019 the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) responded to 2,266 cyber security incidents
  • Cybercrime is one of the most pervasive threats facing Australia and the most significant threat in terms of overall volume and impact to individuals and businesses
  • The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) Targeting Scams 2019 report, identified Australians lost over $634 million to scams
