Cyber Security Awareness Month

October marks Cyber Security Awareness Month, with this years theme is Do Your Part #BeCyberSmart.

According to the Australian Cyber Security Centre, FY21 saw an increase of 13% in cybercrime, equating to a cyberattack occurring every 8 minutes.

The COVID-19 crisis caused a dramatic shift in the way we work, with government restrictions forcing many businesses to rapidly adapt to remote working models which, in turn, created a range of challenges for corporate cybersecurity.

The digital transformation was fast-tracked to adapt to these changes, expanding cyber vulnerabilities for organisations. According to our 2021 Business Survey Report, 68% of businesses were found to be vulnerable to a cybersecurity attack.

Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility. Organisation need to empower their employees in all departments to be cyber aware.

To support Cyber Security Awareness Month and your organisation upskilling, SAI Global is offering a 15% discount on ISO 27001 audit day rates and ISO 27001 Foundation training.

“The Australian Cyber Security Centre’s latest Annual Cyber Threat Report shows that malicious cyber actors and criminals are becoming increasingly innovative and active in targeting Australians online.” Assistant Minister for Defence, the Hon Andrew Hastie MP

Understanding ISO 27001

When designing and optimising a cybersecurity strategy, businesses can look to adopt standards and certify their information security management system.

ISO 27001 provides a practical framework to help businesses identify and manage potential cybersecurity risks, continually improve controls to help safeguard the organisation, and fuel a cyber-aware culture – with everyone in the organisation taking an alert-but-not-alarmed position.

Being ISO certified can provide an immediate boost to your organisation’s credibility and reputation, as well as a competitive edge. Not only does ISO 27001 align with global practices, it also meets DISP requirements for ICT security.
