As you may be aware, news of cyber attacks on businesses is now a daily occurrence. People are losing money to ransomware, internet and telephone scams, identity theft and more.

According to a recent Security Brief report, by the end of 2020, over 67% of Australian organisations had suffered a ransomware attack, 10% above the global trends, and at least half had suffered data loss or theft of some kind.

The average cost to small businesses as a result of these breaches was in excess of $50,000, for larger SMB’s, the cost spiked to $1.25m on average.

For many, this is a business ending scenario.

As a firm specialising in the protection of people’s wealth, Rawson Verco Need are meeting the challenge that these threats present, by establishing a new business unit specifically to help protect businesses and become resilient.

This is supported by Federal Government legislation that makes businesses increasingly responsible for their own protection, where penalties for breach may apply.
