Modern threats place your digital identity, business data and IP at risk of theft, corruption or loss. IT security breaches can have significant impact on your business operations, your brand, your finances and those of your customers. When a physical asset is stolen or destroyed it is usually replaceable and it normally wont affect your customer.
There is a misconception that hackers are the number one cause of data breaches but the actual leading cause of data breaches – and often the most detrimental because it can disrupt business continuity – has been identified as unintentional human error.
Information security firm Shred-It’s survey of more than 1,100 businesses in Australia admitted that human error is a larger threat to information security than deliberate theft or sabotage by a third party.
XCy’s comprehensive cyber IT solutions aim at educating users and business managers, empowering your employees and your business with the skills to identify potential threats, and disarm any active agents before they are able to infect and compromise your systems.
We will educate staff to avoid your business becoming a victim, or unwilling perpetrator, of a data breach. We will review physical security, install surveillance and ensure your physical network is secure against unauthorized access. We can protect the business from possible breaches caused when staff travel to foreign locations and use non-secure networks. We will geo-block traffic from certain countries or sites if you don’t normally do business there. The first step in our plan is to understand your business operation and data security needs.
The effect of data loss can extend beyond your business to that of your customers. For customers, the impact of a data breach is almost always irreconcilable. Based on a survey by the Australian Community Attitude to Privacy Survey (ACAPS) , conducted by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), 58 per cent of consumers said they would not deal with a business due to privacy or security concerns associated with data loss.
The country’s first data breach notification law – the Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) scheme – came into effect in 2018. Under the new law, any government agency, organisation or business with an annual turnover of $3 million or more in Australia that is covered by the Australian Privacy Act (1998) is obliged to notify individuals whose personal information is involved in a data breach, as soon as practicable after becoming aware of a breach.
