How Australian Organisations Can Build More Resilient Systems to Reduce Cyber Risk

As Australian organisations expand their digital capabilities, they increasingly find themselves navigating a complex cybersecurity landscape. Recent high-profile security incidents are glaring reminders of the escalating severity, widespread occurrence, and sophisticated nature of cyber threats targeting both the public and private sectors.

Rigorous regulations surrounding personally identifiable information (PII) are complicating the situation further. Regulatory bodies are imposing stricter guidelines and more substantial penalties for non-compliance than ever before.

There’s also a push from global cybersecurity bodies to adopt better cyber hygiene practices and improve how we protect our systems. These recommended best practices are essential for better security. However, the cost of implementation is rising at a time when many companies are trying to reduce costs and seek efficiency dividends in operations.
