Frequently Asked Questions

What is cyber security, and why is it important?

Cyber security involves protecting your computer systems, networks, and data from unauthorised access, attacks, and damage by implementing various technologies, processes, and practices.

It is crucial because it helps prevent data breaches, protects sensitive information, and ensures that your business operations are not disrupted by cyber attacks.

What are the common types of cyber threats?

Common cyber threats include malware (malicious software), phishing (fraudulent emails or messages), ransomware (holding data hostage), and denial-of-service attacks (disrupting service).

How can I improve my business’s cyber security?

Improve your cyber security by using strong passwords, installing firewalls and antivirus software, keeping software updated, and educating employees on safe online practices. For comprehensive protection, consider getting professional cyber security services from experts like Australia Wide IT.

What is a firewall, and how does it work?

A firewall is a security device that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined rules, acting as a barrier between a trusted network and untrusted networks.

What is encryption, and why is it important?

Encryption converts data into a code to prevent unauthorised access. It is important because it protects sensitive information from being accessed or stolen by hackers.

What is multi-factor authentication (MFA)?

MFA is a security system that requires multiple forms of verification (e.g., password, phone code) to access an account, making it harder for unauthorised users to gain access.

What should I do if my business experiences a cyber attack?

If your business experiences a cyber attack, disconnect affected systems, notify your IT team or a cyber security professional, and follow your incident response plan to mitigate damage.

How should I manage my passwords? 

For your most sensitive accounts (e.g. online banking, ATO and MyGov accounts), choose a memorable passphrase; for example, “IlikeCornflakesForBreakfast” Add some non-alpha characters (numbers and symbols) to satisfy complexity requirements.

Avoid recording these passwords anywhere but if you simply cannot remember them, write them down and keep the written record away from your computer.

Do NOT record your passwords in a computer file, and do not use the same password for more than one service.

For your less crucial accounts use a password manager such as LastPass or Google Chrome’s in-built password manager.

Why is employee training important for cyber security?

Employee training is vital because employees are often the first line of defence against cyber threats.

Training helps them recognise and respond to potential security risks, reducing the chance of a successful attack.
