Description

OVERVIEW

Cloud accounting, online payments and other technologies have made our life much convenient than before, however, they have also prompted new problems including cyber risks to individuals and businesses.

Australia's businesses face major threats in cyberspace. A frightening range of malign forces are pitched against them, and they have many harmful motives - fraud, personal identity theft, intellectual property theft, industrial espoinage, service disruption, physical damange, blackmail and more.

Robust data security was legislated in Australia under the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017, which makes it mandatory for businesses to report eligible data breaches from 22 February 2018.

Come along to our 12 April event to listen to Cyber security experts to discuss what non-IT people especially accountants can do to prevent themselves and their businesses from cyber crimes.
