Cyber Security

What is a Cyber Attack?

A cyber attack is any deliberate attempt to unlawfully access, compromise, manipulate, or eradicate data, applications, or digital assets by infiltrating a network, computer system, or digital device.

Cyber attacks hit businesses every day.

In Australia during 2023, a cyber security breach was reported approximately every 6 minutes.

One in 5 critical vulnerabilities was exploited within 48 hours

This was despite patching or mitigation advice being available. Malicious cyber actors used these critical flaws to cause significant incidents and compromise networks, aided by inadequate patching

The top cybercrime categories for business are


Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to come from a reputable source, usually through email.

The goal is to steal sensitive data like credit card and login information or to install malware on the victim’s machine. Phishing is an increasingly common cyberthreat.

Malware is a term used to describe malicious software, including spyware, ransomware, viruses, and worms. Malware breaches a network through a vulnerability, typically when a user clicks a dangerous link or email attachment that then installs risky software. Once inside the system, malware can do the following:

  • Blocks access to key components of the network (ransomware)
  • Installs malware or additional harmful software
  • Covertly obtains information by transmitting data from the hard drive (spyware)

On average, a cyber attack costs a medium business $97,200

What to do if you’re a victim of cybercrime

Picture this: your business is cruising along, riding the digital wave with finesse.

Suddenly, out of the binary blue, a cyber assailant strikes, causing chaos in your carefully crafted digital realm.

It’s like an unexpected plot twist in a cyber thriller, only this time, it’s your data on the line. Welcome to the wild world of cyber security!

Now, in the aftermath of such a digital duel, what’s a savvy small business to do?

First off, breathe. Panic isn’t a great look on anyone. Next, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and start investigating.

Assess the damage, identify the breach, and plug those cyber holes faster than you can say “firewall.”

Cyber Incident Response

A Cyber Incident Response involves swiftly and effectively addressing security breaches to minimize damage and protect valuable data. When a breach occurs, your primary goal is to act promptly to contain the incident and prevent further harm. 

In essence, Cyber Incident Response is about being proactive, decisive, and thorough in your approach to cybersecurity incidents. By following a well-defined response plan, you can effectively safeguard your organization’s sensitive information and maintain the trust of those you serve.

The 7 steps of incident response are Preparation, Identification, Containment, Eradication, Recovery, Learning, and Re-testing. These phases provide a structure to manage the response to a cybersecurity threat in an organised way.

You can also use the Australian Cyber Security Centre resources to help you report and recover:
