So it’s critical that your business has the right processes and security in place to combat these threats.

Cyber threats are not just a problem for huge corporations, but small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) often fall prey to them as well. The fact that SMBs normally have fewer security measures in place only further worsens their vulnerability to cyber crime.
Common threats that cybersecurity companies deal with are:
We can provide complete vulnerability assessments for private and public sector organisations to ensure that your system has the right cyber security technology solutions in place.
There are many ways to ensure your business technology is strong enough to withstand most attacks. Whether you are using cloud solutions, on-premise IT, or a combination of both, it’s wise to have regular security assessments and penetration testing to ensure your information security is well managed.
We recommend using:
It’s never a pleasant surprise to discover that your computer has been hacked. We get calls from companies in Brisbane and Australia-wide, asking how to tell if their PC has been hacked.
One of the first indicators is that your system starts running really slow. This can be due to system performance issues but is often a sign that your computer has been hacked. If it starts happening right after downloading something or opening a link, this can often be the reason.
Another telltale sign is strange pop-up ads that didn’t use to. They may be from a software company or even appear to be from a cybersecurity solution provider, and may be a sign your system is infected with malicious software.
Something else to look out for is your webcam being in use, when you weren’t aware it had been. This can be checked in your settings, and generally will indicate what programs have recently accessed your webcam.
New programs being installed can also indicate malicious files are present on your PC. This can sometimes happen when you have downloaded a different program, and files have been attached to cause harm.
There are many other things to look out for, which cyber security companies have experience in dealing with. If you have any concerns in this area, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Even though phishing scams are becoming increasingly clever, there are still some common-sense guidelines that can prevent many incidences of phishing. It’s important that your team have this knowledge too, and every business needs to ensure this and take a security-first approach to protect themselves from phishing scams.
Phishing attacks generally come through emails or other links or attachments sent to a business email account. They may prompt the person to unknowingly provide access to a company account, or install malicious files onto an organisation’s system.
It’s important to be aware that these scams can look real. The best line of defence is to ensure all team members are trained to spot them and to report anything suspicious immediately. Using phishing simulation tools is also an excellent way to increase your team’s awareness of incoming phishing attempts. As your managed services provider, w can provide ongoing assistance in this area and get your staff up to speed.
Ransomware, as we touched on above, is a very common type of cyber security attack, generally targeting businesses or high-profile individuals for monetary gain or reputational damage. The results for a business of any size can be devastating.
Unfortunately, these attacks are not limited to large organisations, with small businesses frequently being targeted due to gaps in their security solutions.
Ransomware is simply a specific type of malware that is designed to lock your files from being used or onsell or share data publicly. Some recent Australian attacks have seen companies have their client and customer data shared across the dark web, which has created absolute havoc for hundreds of thousands of people who have had their identification and addresses shared publicly.
To keep your business safe, it’s essential to:
Most of all, ensure that you manage each aspect of your technology and address any vulnerabilities.
Antivirus software is an essential part of your cyber security systems. There are many different levels of anti-virus software, and more frequently, we see anti-virus delivered as a subscription service or as part of managed cyber security services.
Antivirus programs are designed to detect incoming viruses, prevent infections from spreading through your computer, or remove them and ‘quarantine’ them to prevent infections from travelling further.
Viruses can cause your system to slow, and come in a multitude of forms, from Trojan horses to rootkits and spyware – not a very friendly bunch! A good anti-virus will frequently scan your system and pick up on changes that pose a threat, a bit like a security team would do – ensuring threats or anything suspicious is not allowed entry or removed as a priority if they manage to sneak past the first line of defence.
We can provide sophisticated antivirus tools to protect your company from outside intrusions and a complete range of other cyber security solutions as your cyber service providers.
