ITConnexion Newsletter October 2022

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month and an annual reminder for all Australians to stay secure online. We encourage you to take a risk-based approach and focus on the behaviors most important to your organisation. Everyone has a right to safe internet, so let’s remember to #BeCyberSmart.

Find out how you can make a difference during Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Organisations are recommended by the Australian government to implement eight essential mitigation strategies from the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC)’s Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents as a baseline. This baseline, known as the Essential Eight, makes it much harder for adversaries to compromise systems.

Make an appointment today for the Essential 8 Assessment:

  • The importance of the Essential 8 for the organisation
  • To identify the cyber security strengths of the organisation
  • To understand areas where the business can improve
  • To know how to improve your cyber security measures and where to find help

Cyber security training and realistic simulations of phishing attacks are the best ways to educate your employees and raise their awareness of cyber security risk. Your employees or end-users are your largest soft target for hackers. Raising their cyber-risk awareness level by educating them is an important and integral part of any cybersecurity strategy.
