Whitepaper – The Cybercrime Threat Matrix


The growing threat of cybercrime is costing organisations of every size, and in every industry, hundreds of billions of dollars globally. And just as cybercrime is becoming more prevalent – Australia’s new data breach laws are raising the stakes for every business that holds personal information about their customers.

Cybercrime is on the rise, and poses a huge threat to business. Technology has changed the way we work – we are mobile, digitally collaborative, and store huge amounts of data in the cloud. Reed more here. Stealing data – like credit card numbers and password – is a multi-billion dollar affair. Some of the world’s most successful and tech-savvy organistions, like Uber, Yahoo and even the Australian Defence Force, have been hacked in recent years – and it has cost them millions of dollars and harmed both share price and reputation.

Since February, Australia’s new Data Breach laws will apply to any organisation with a $3 million plus turnover, or which stores tax file numbers or health information, and data breaches must be notified within 30 days. Governments are taking cybercrime very seriously – and you need to know what the requirements are, so you can meet them.
