October was cyber security awareness month and cybercrime in Australia is on the rise!
In my prior blog post, I provided a concise review of the Australian Signal Directorate’s (ASD) recent annual cyber security report and unfortunately it wasn’t full of good news. Cybercrime in Australia is on the rise.
In this blog I’ll provide with some information that’ll help you protect your business and provide you with the confidence to continue operating in cyberspace.
As businesses become more reliant on operating in cyberspace, they also must become more agile to responding to how malicious actors may try and exploit vulnerabilities, however according to Microsoft, basic security hygiene will prevent 99% of attacks!
Figure 1: Microsoft Infographic – Basic security hygiene still protects against 99% of attacks
The above infographic demonstrates what is considered basic security hygiene by Microsoft. All of these features are included within the Microsoft 365 Business Premium, are actively implemented by MODEX and mostly operate in the background without interrupting your staff’s day-to-day work.
If these basic cyber security hygiene principles are implemented in your current IT environment then you can begin to feel confident that your business is secure from 99% of all cyber attacks.
