Did you know using a simple statement like ‘I don’t like pineapple on my pizza!’ as a password can take more than one year and costs scammers $107,000 to crack? The reason it’s a great password is it:

  • is easy to remember
  • has 35 characters
  • includes an apostrophe, exclamation mark and spaces.

This is just one of the tips you can find in a range of resources available to help you protect your business. These resources have been developed by us and the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) who recently surveyed small businesses about cyber security.

The ACSC found 75% of small business owners surveyed are responsible for their own IT and almost half say they don’t know enough about cyber security.

If this sounds familiar, then these resources are a great place to start.
