The cyber security landscape is rapidly evolving. A few years ago, most threats were generic, but they’re much more targeted these days. Cyber criminals are trying to monetise attacks, and they’re using a combination of automation and humans to do it. Regardless of the size of your business, your revenue, or the industry in which you operate, the risks of a cyber-attack are real.

Indeed, according to Sophos, a global cyber security vendor that partners with The Missing Link, a survey of 5,400 IT Decision Makers recently found that 45% of Australian respondents were hit by ransomware in the past year. On top of that, 57% had experienced an increase in the number of cyber-attacks over 2020 and scarily, 74% of cybercriminals succeeded in encrypting data.

With this in mind, how confident are you that your existing IT service provider is offering you maximum protection? Are they informing you of current and emerging cyber security risks and advising you on mitigation strategies? Are they equipping your team to avoid threats? And is your IT environment fully patched against known vulnerabilities?

If you’re unsure, it’s time to call them in to review your existing arrangement and discuss the options going forward. You should also take time to look at alternative providers that can offer the level of cyber security you need to protect your people, processes and physical premises from the increased threat of attacks coming from within Australia and overseas.
