One of the largest threats to all modern businesses is cyber crime. Your IT system is central to your business, so when you take part in a cyber security training course in the northern rivers we show you how to reduce the risks of cyber attack and how to ensure your business will survive in the event of a cyber breach.

Many people think cyber crime is restricted to large business, although that was true a few years ago, big businesses now have huge budgets to counter cyber crime, so it’s difficult for cyber criminals to succeed with them. Many cyber criminals like to pray on easy pickings like small companies who don’t bother or can’t afford to use even the basic protection.

It’s vital that everyone who has access to your IT network or any of your databases, are not only aware of cyber crime, but are able to effectively counter it.

What Exactly Is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is about protecting all aspects of your business networks, computer systems, devices, programs, data and data storage. It’s also important to know how to utilize a viable backup storage system that’s isolated or completely separate from your entire computer system so all your important data cannot be compromised and you always have access to it as required.

Cyber attacks can be designed to steal sensitive information such as financial details allowing the cyber criminal access to your financial records of your own or client’s accounts, to gather data and details to sell on the dark web, to extort money from your business or to destroy sensitive data.
