Kilimanjaro understands the importance of security in each business and we want to make sure you do too. In today’s fast-developing, innovative world of technological advancement, we are experiencing remarkable solutions at an extremely fast rate. However, the quick pace and extreme change in the technology world means we need to remember there are some dangers to such an evolution as this. In the era of internet, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, the risk of a cyber attack is increasing and becoming more and more complicated. Ensure you have taken the right precautionary steps and become comfortable in knowing that your business is protected.

What is a cyber attack?

Cyber-attacks have become a recurring theme in news headlines in recent years, from large corporations losing billions of pieces of data to alleged state-sponsored hacking of emails to hacked elections. The cyber attack has many different scenarios but, simply, it is an attempt to hack your computer system, network or device with cruel intentions. The most popular ones can put the whole company system into lockdown with an expectation for you to pay anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars in order for your business to return to usual functioning. But what if your data gets stolen?

New Data Breach Law

“What is the Notifiable Data Breaches scheme? The passage of the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 established the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme in Australia. The NDB scheme applies to all agencies and organisations with existing personal information security obligations under the Australian Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) from 22 February 2018.”
