Combat Malware And Ransomware With Cyber Essentials

Why should you worry about malware?

According to recent statistics from the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), malware remains the leading cause of cyber attacks for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in Australia. In fact, ACSC’s annual report highlights that over 60% of cyber incidents reported by SMEs in Australia are attributed to malware infections. This underscores the critical importance of implementing robust cybersecurity measures, including comprehensive training programs like CyberPathways Cyber Essentials, to protect against the pervasive threat of malware and ransomware.
