Can your organisation afford a data breach?

26 August 2019

Leon Fouche , National Leader, Cyber Security |

Cyber risk remains an ever-present consequence of society’s adoption of technology. The cyber landscape is constantly changing, and the number and level of sophistication of attacks are increasing. Organisations need to be agile in adapting their approach to cyber security.

Add to this the increase in public awareness of information security, it has become evident that wider reputational impacts from a data breach can lead to heavier (and more difficult to quantify) costs. For this very reason, the need for organisations to be able to detect, respond and recover from a cyber incident are more important than ever.

Based upon our experience with hundreds of companies worldwide across all industries, benchmarking continues to be an essential step to help organisations better prepare for managing their cyber risks. It is important for organisations to understand the types of cyber threats that exist, and how they relate to their industry and business operations.

Are you aware of the latest cyber security threats and trends in the industry? Does your organisation have the right measures in place to protect against the increase cyber threats? 

The fourth BDO and AusCERT Cyber Security Survey is now closed. This annual survey identifies and monitors current cyber security trends, issues and threats facing businesses in Australia and New Zealand.

The survey report delivers insights that help businesses build and maintain their cyber resilience over the long term. Sign up to our cyber security insights to receive a copy of the report once it’s released.
