7 Simple steps for Small Business Cyber Security

Mar 2, 2022 | Events, Security

Join James from Extreme Networks as he discusses the 7 simplest steps you can take to increase your business’ cyber security resilience.

The Small Business Cyber Security risk has increased significantly in the last 5 years.  Traditionally we have seen threats from insider theft of information.  Today the number of attackers has increased exponentially, with a range of international hackers now actively targeting small business networks for a range of reasons.  This has made Cyber Security an important part of any business.

We will cover:

  • The current threat environment – who is trying to attack your network and why.  We will discuss the reasons for the recent Australian Cyber Security Centre’s HIGH ALERT ADVISORY.
  • Recent cyber attacks against local small businesses – we will detail 3 recent attacks that created significant risks to local businesses.
  • 7 simplest steps to protect your business – these are the easiest to implement and will significantly decrease the risk to your business.

James will share Extreme Networks collective experience in preventing and responding to a range of cyber incidents that have impacted local small business.   Some of these attacks have been for more than $25,000 so it can have a crippling effect on small businesses.

This presentation will provide you with an update on the current threats and the techniques, tactics and procedures that hackers are using to penetrate SME networks.  You will also understand the 7 most cost-effective and simple to implement cyber resilience measures to protect your business.
