Six steps to staying cyber aware

The best way to minimise the damage of a cyber attack is to be prepared.  

There is a difference between a security breach and a data breach; a security breach is a break-in, whereas a data breach is when a cyber criminal gets away with information.   

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the global average cost of a data breach increased from US$3.9m to US$4.2m.

  5. Keep users aware
  6. Stress test
