Cybersecurity is fast becoming the single most important business concern for Australian Enterprises. From mandatory Data Breach Reporting through to ASIC cybersecurity recommendations to board members, the scope of activities spans from the shop floor all the way to the board.
The impact of a cyber-attack can be crippling and it is vital that owners of small and medium enterprises as well as their advisors become familiar with the fundamentals to raise awareness and proactively manage risk.
Cybersecurity is not the simple purchase and application of technologies; it is the identification and implementation of a coordinated approach to improving cybersecurity practices with people, processes and technology.
This webinar will introduce the regulatory, technical and behavioural challenges to creating a business-oriented cybersecurity environment. It will cover the frameworks that can assist in improving cybersecurity and also highlight some common missteps that can prove discouraging.
The webinar will start at a high level and move to some practical case studies and examples of “how not to” approach cybersecurity.
Webinar Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this webinar you will have an improved understanding of:
- The evolving regulatory requirements for cybersecurity in Australia;
- the scope of cybersecurity in business;
- “how not to” approach implementing cybersecurity; and
- The interplay between people, processes and technology.
- Professionals and advisors
- Board Members
- Executive Management Committee
- Senior Management Team

The webinar is not industry-specific; cybersecurity is not picky, and attacks and breaches occur across all organisations, no matter the business or size of organisation. The presentation will be aimed at decision-makers and advisors and ‘technical’ language and jargon will be kept to a minimum.
