This information session will outline threat types and practical tips on how your business can be better prepared to protect against, respond to, and recover from a cyber incident. The session will cover case studies on cyber attacks and the tools and strategies you can apply to protect your business.

Detective A/Senior Sergeant Craig Windebank of NT Police Cyber Crime is encouraging business owners to attend.

“Cybercrime remains an enduring threat to Northern Territory businesses, in the past 12 months reported instances of Business Email Compromise have become increasingly common with Northern Territory Police currently responding to a report every 14 days with the average financial loss approaching $30,000.”

“Whether you run a mid-sized organisation or operate with just a laptop and email account, a cyber attack could affect you”.

Cybercriminals are targeting Australians at an unprecedented level. The Australian Cyber Security Centre ACSC provides services to the Northern Territory through the Darwin JCSC Outreach Service to individuals and Territory businesses.  Attend the session to find out how you can join the free Partnership Program and access ongoing services and advice.
