Maxsum + Sophos: Taking cybersecurity to the Top End!

Maxsum + Sophos: Taking cybersecurity to the Top End!

Cyber incidents, ransomware business email compromises, data breaches, phishing emails, credentials breaches…

…and more of them!

This is exactly what we’re hearing about from businesses more and more every day!

And it’s not just isolated incidents that affect the big guys (remember the news of Facebook last year?).

Cyber incidents are striking hard more often and even closer to home. Just look at the recent Australian Parliament incident, reports of the Bunnings breach, or the latest reported incident affecting 15,000 patient files at a Melbourne heart clinic

In fact…

In 2017, 48% of Australian organisations were hit by ransomware and 78% of those were running up-to-date antivirus protection at the time of the attack!

Things have clearly changed! What we relied on before is now no longer enough – Unfortunately, what got us here, won’t get us there!

That’s why in 2018 Maxsum partnered with Sophos to deliver the latest knowledge and content to assist businesses on all sizes across Victoria to better understand the threat and what they need to start doing about it!

Now, we’re super excited to be taking the message further afield – to the Top End of Oz to be exact! Get ready Queensland! We’re partnering with Sophos again to bring the discussions around cyber security and your obligations under new Privacy Legislation to the forefront of your business considerations, and you’re invited!
