Small Business Cybercrime Prevention

How safe is your small business from cybercrime?

COVID-19 has led to a greater number of employees working from home and using personal devices for work, which has consequently opened up greater avenues for malicious actors to infect business with ransomware.

If you're a small business start-up or an already established business, you’ll benefit from learning about simple measures to help protect your business from cybercrime.

This session will focus on the phishing and ransomware types of cybercrime - how they can threaten your business, ways to protect yourself and your business, and what to do if you do fall victim.

This information session will include:

  • Phishing and avoiding being hooked.
  • Identifying a Ransomware attack and threat vectors
  • What is ransomware and how does it work?
  • Resources available if attacked by ransomware.
  • Identifying where to report incidents of online crimes
  • Low-cost prevention strategies to protect your business.
