If your company had a data breach, can you say your business is prepared?
With the recent data breaches in the media, we now know they can have long term and far-reaching effects on individuals, companies and even the government. Even if you have been one of the few lucky ones to avoid your data leaking, you will be affected by the changes this brings about.
Going forward, more and more people will be having conversations about data including:
- What data do we give away when signing up to things?
- What data do we collect and is it necessary?
- How do we store and protect our data?
With almost one in four people affected by the recent data breaches, we wanted to bring attention to some of the helpful resources that our Phriendly Phishing and Cyber CX team have available.
Our helpful resources provide key advice for organisations and individuals who are either at risk or looking to reduce their cyber risk.
- Focus on internal data collection

We have developed this beneficial resource to help guide you in the conversations you should be having with your team about data and how you can be proactive and prepare for the worst-case scenario.

- How to deal with suspicious phone calls
Threat actors target Australians through mobile phones to access information and gain access to other systems, including victims’ organisations. As many phone numbers have now been compromised, it's important to know how to deal with suspicious phone calls.
If in doubt, always disconnect the phone call and reestablish contact through a trusted means of communication.
- What do I do if my data has been compromised or is it risk?
First and foremost – report it to your local cyber security authority.
In Australia, you can refer to scamwatch.gov.au to report a scam and follow the latest information about scams.
In New Zealand, you can refer to cert.govt.nz to report a scam and follow the latest information about scams.
