Everyone Can Be a Cyber Warden

  • Accessibility: You don’t need to be an IT expert or tech-savvy to become a Cyber Warden. The program is designed for everyone, aiming to integrate cyber safety practices as seamlessly as workplace safety.

The Impact on Australian Small Businesses

  • Vulnerability: With 2.3 million small businesses in Australia, the potential impact of cyber threats is significant. However, through education, small businesses can become a formidable first line of cyber defense.
  • Statistics Highlight the Urgency:
    • A significant percentage of cyber crimes target small businesses.
    • There is a notable annual increase in cyber insurance premiums.
    • Customer trust drops dramatically following an attack, with considerable hours lost to recovery.
