Is Your Business At Risk?

Does your business have a strong cybersecurity framework? Do you have cyber security policies and procedures? Do you have industry-specific security requirements that must be enforced? Do you have cyber security awareness training? Do you have cyber insurance?


There has been an unprecedented rise in cyber attacks, and small to medium businesses are frequently targeted due to their vulnerability as they often think that because they’re small, they’re not a target, but it’s the reverse, small and medium business is the perfect target especially if they don’t take cyber security seriously.


This report from the Australian Cyber Security Centre indicates that 62% of SMBs have experienced a cyber security incident. Cyber threats are only growing, with the number of attacks and their costs increasing each year.


The average cost per attack is now $39,000 for small businesses and $88,000 for medium businesses, with businesses often subject to multiple attacks over a year.

Protect Your Business With a vCISO

A Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) is an IT Executive who uses their years of cybersecurity experience to help your business develop and manage a holistic information security strategy. 

They understand your current technology and vulnerabilities and then combine this knowledge with their industry experience to provide the best cybersecurity solutions.

With the presence of a vCISO within your business, you can feel confident knowing that your sensitive information is safeguarded against cyber threats, without the high cost of an in-house CISO. The CISO, CIO and CFO will generally all work closely together.
