In light of the recent Optus and Medibank data breach, we would like to reassure you that protecting your financial and personal information is imperative to us. Our systems have not been compromised and we are continuously utilising our expert team of IT professionals to keep you and your data safe.
With hybrid working arrangements becoming more prevalent in recent years, businesses are at greater risk of cyber-attacks, such as phishing scams and social engineering. Savvy cyber criminals are aware of these vulnerabilities and are constantly developing new hacking tactics to manipulate businesses.
Now more than ever, it’s important for businesses to stay vigilant about cyber safety.
While no set list of strategies is guaranteed to protect against all cyber threats, here at Perks we implement eight essential strategies as recommended by the Australian Cyber Security Centre to mitigate cyber security incidents. This baseline, known as the ‘Essential Eight’ includes the above pointers among others and greatly minimises the opportunities for cyber criminals to compromise our systems.
Perks proudly supports Cyber Security Awareness Month, an annual reminder for everyone to stay vigilant and secure online. Learn more at the Australian Cyber Security Centre.
