Cyber-crime is a concerning and increasing trend, especially now with more people working from home, remotely or from their phone as they move around. During this COVID-19 period of uncertainty, it is estimated that over 30% of small businesses will be the subject of an attempted breach or breach of their systems, accounts, personal information or sensitive business information.

The City of Bunbury is a partner of the CyberCheck.Me initiative, and as a result with their support and that of the WA AustCyber Innovation Hub, they are able to offer FREE one-on-one 1 hour consultations to SME businesses.

The process begins with an initial cyber health check survey which allows us to identify your cyber vulnerabilities It should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. The password is ‘cyber2020’ and you’ll need to create a unique identifier upon log in.

Your health check survey results will then be analysed and put into an easy to understand report. The cyber experts from ECU and North Metropolitan TAFE will then deliver the online consultation, where they will provide advice and suggestions on how to improve Cyber Safety in your business using the ‘Essential 8 Cyber Mitigation’ strategies.

The CyberCheck.Me initiative aims to provide small to medium businesses with the tools and techniques to better protect themselves and their business from cyber security threats. Here is a link to our website if you want more information on the initiative:…/ecu-security-re…/cybercheckme/about
