Alkon Cyber Security to Help Australian Businesses Protect Their Information With Critical Security Recommendations
Alkon Cyber is a Australia-based Security firm which is leading the pack when it comes to adequately assessing small to medium business’s IT Security. In line with ACSC recommendations as well as the rising number of cybercrime incidents, it has never been more important to safeguard sensitive information, confidential customer data and private financial details.
Law firms, insurance agents, tax consultants, accountants, real estate companies, banks, financial lenders and brokers and any business owners who hold a database of confidential client information, are required to meet the conditions of government regulations.
High-tech activity characterises the way businesses use and share information, but the digital world is under attack, with network breaches and cyberthreats happening hundreds of times a day in Australia and throughout the world. It is irresponsible not to protect and to secure business information accordingly.
According to cyber.gov.au the most recent annual report states that the ACSC received over 67,500 cybercrime reports, an increase of nearly 13% from the previous financial year. That equates to one reported cyber-attack every 8 minutes, with a higher proportion of these incidents categorised as having a ‘substantial impact’. And these are just the reported cases.
Alkon Cyber Security, formed in Israel by expert IT leader Omer Yerushalmi has recently opened a branch in Australia to service the growing need for A-grade cyber security. Beyond the day-to-day monitoring and intelligent upgrading of software and systems, Alkon also provides essential ‘employee education’ to empower personnel to practice safe digital behaviour and recognise any red flags. Michael Ben-Zaquen, Senior manager of Alkon Australia says, “From what we have seen in the last six months, hackers are getting more creative and business owners are not prioritising cyber security. This is a dangerous combination. It doesn’t cost much to arrange a ‘health-check’ of business IT security, but it is invaluable for all parties.”
