The Survey delivers a baseline understanding of the level of cybersecurity practices and knowledge among Australian small and medium businesses.
A summary and analysis of the Survey results are available as part of the survey results:
The data from the Survey informed the development of the ACSC’s technical guidance materials tailored to meet the needs and capabilities of Australian small and medium businesses to help to protect them from cyber incidents.
Specifically, data helped to tailor the security controls identified in technical guidance, the language used, and the way that content was structured to maximise retention and impact in an effort to protect Australian SMBs.
The Small Business Cyber Security Guide has been specifically designed for Australian small businesses to understand, take action, and increase their cyber security resilience against ever-evolving cyber security threats. The language is clear, the actions are simple, and the guidance is tailored for small businesses.
