Your 5-step IT security parachute — NZ Business
Posted on 2-Jul-2016 14:13 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


Bill Bennett went to five IT security experts to determine the five easiest, most affordable, steps you can take right now to secure your business.

Online criminals can attack from anywhere in the world and at any time. New Zealand is in their sights. Like all criminals, they look for easy targets – which means the technology equivalents of unlocked doors, unprotected buildings and unguarded valuables.

The scale of the problem is enormous. Security specialist Symantec reports cybercrime cost New Zealanders $257 million in 2015. The online attacks affected 856,000 people – roughly one in five of the population. And these are just the crimes we know about, many more go undetected.

All businesses are vulnerable. PwC Research found over half of all New Zealand businesses face an online attack at least once a year. Most businesses, especially smaller companies, don’t have an IT security strategy of any description.
