Keeping Melbourne Business Cyber Safe

The rapid deployment of technology due to COVID-19 has brought with it potentially devastating risks for businesses attempting to stay afloat in these difficult times.
COVID-19 has created a lot of financial hardship and uncertainty for many businesses across the globe. This uncertainty has led to significant innovation at a rapid pace as organisations scramble to adapt to keeping their workforce operating remotely as well as provide products and services almost entirely online.
We are observing an explosion of new web sites and online services helped by the generous contributions of numerous councils such as Melbourne City Council who are offering grants of up to $10,000 to assist businesses to migrate their products online.
The rapid deployment has increased the potential vulnerabilities of websites and created much more room for error in terms of their technical configuration. This is matched by the rise of cybercrime activities directly targeting both remote workers and business websites.
It is critical at this time for all organisations to ensure that this agile and rapid go to market strategy has not resulted in increasing risks around technology or customer data.
The good news is that the available grants may also be used in improving your online security controls when uplifting your website.
To help you ensure your online presence is secure, Sentaris is offering Melbourne Business Network Members an additional 10% off all Security Assurance engagements (as long as they are completed before August 2020).
