The ACSC Small Business Survey is being shared with a range of government and small business support groups around Australia, inviting members and stakeholders to participate.
The survey is an opportunity to share the challenges small businesses face and to know what they’re worried about, so we can help businesses of all kinds manage risks and minimise harm to their business, staff and customers.
For the Head of the ACSC, Lt General John Frewen, listening to Australia’s small business community to better understand this important sector’s concerns and needs – even what they think ‘cyber security’ means – is vital.
‘The ACSC Small Business Survey will provide a real-time snapshot of what’s happening on the ground in the some 2.3 million small businesses operating in Australia today, and help us to prioritise the information we develop for this diverse and prevalent sector of the economy.’
The survey results will assist the ACSC to better understand the types of challenges confronting small businesses, so we can develop tailor made products and advice to specifically address their needs.
Products including how-to guides and a new Small Business Guide, with easy-to-understand cyber security advice, will help businesses manage cyber security risks on a day-to-day basis.
