Business Station (Fremantle)
21A Pakenham Street

A simple Guide to the types of Cybercrime and the importance of data protection for Small Businesses.

The Commonwealth government estimates that up to 90% of Australian Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are online. However, convenience of digital comes at a cost. Cybercrime is a growing threat and is becoming an attractive way for criminals to steal information, money and or disrupt business.

Cybercrime costs Australia around $1Billion per year and 59% of Australian organisations have their business interrupted by cyber crime every month, according to the Commonwealth’s Stay Smart Online guide for small business. Many of the breaches come from human mistakes or lack of awareness. By investing in employee training and adopting effective cyber security best practice, some cyber attacks are identifiable and preventable. If your business collects personal data, you are required to deal with personal data in compliance with Privacy Act.

At this interactive workshop, you would learn about:
- the types of Cybercrime affecting SMEs and the practical way to mitigate the risks
- an overview of Australian Privacy Principles and Privacy Act 1988
- a practical guide to drafting a privacy policy
