Cyber-attacks are a growing challenge for Australian companies and are now Australia’s number-one economic crime. MailGuard collaborates with PwC and Microsoft to bring together CEOs and cybersecurity experts in forums focussed on the rise of cybercrime and the challenge it presents for business.

At our Cybersecurity Awareness Forum on March 6 the expert speakers included Alastair MacGibbon, Head of the Australian Cyber Security Centre who delivered the keynote.
MailGuard took the opportunity to interview Alastair MacGibbon during the event and asked his advice for CEOs and business owners tackling cybersecurity issues.


Cybersecurity: a pressing issue

PwC’s 21st CEO Survey recently revealed some telling trends in the risk-management concerns of the world’s business leaders:

“Terrorism and cyber threats moved up; uncertain economic growth and exchange rate volatility moved down… Chief threats; cyber-threats (53%), then over-regulation (50%), geopolitical uncertainty (44%), terrorism (43%)...”

Cyber-threats continue to be an enormous challenge for Australian companies and are now Australia’s number-one economic crime. CEOs are often directly targeted by social engineering attacks designed to exploit their authority within organisations.

The CxO Cybersecurity Awareness Luncheon last week was an opportunity for executives to get expert advice from prominent influencers in government and business, and broaden their understanding of data-breach prevention. Read key excerpts from the speaker's presentations, here.
