The Australian Signals Directorate’s, Australian Cyber Security Centre has developed a Small Business Cyber Security Guide and Step-by-Step Guides to help small businesses protect themselves from the most common cyber security incidents.
The advice has been specifically designed for 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 businesses.
If you are learning about cyber security for the first time, or are keeping yourself up to date, the Small Business Cyber Security Guide is a good starting point. It covers cyber security threats, software considerations, and people and procedures.
If you would like more detail, there are a range of Step-by-Step Guides designed to support businesses in how to enable security controls such as multi-factor authentication, automatic updates and backing up and restoring.
