Security Attacks 

The swift, public, and pervasive cyber attacks in 2017 demonstrated how cyber risk cannot be effectively managed solely as an information technology (IT) issue. The WannaCry ransomware attack hit over 200,000 computers in 150 countries, taking businesses offline, disrupting sales and operations. Arguably the most significant data breach in U.S. history hit Equifax, exposing the sensitive data of 143 million people, while subjecting the company to legal claims resulting in a dramatic loss of shareholder value and executive resignations.

Cyber security by the numbers:

  • 516,380 — the number of Australian small businesses that fell victim to cyber crime in 2017, according to Norton.
  • $4677 — the average amount the majority of SMEs would have to pay to free their data from ransomware.
  • 25 hours or more — the amount of downtime one in four businesses hit by cyber attacks suffer.
  • $1.9 million — the average cost to a medium sized business if hit by a cyber attack.
  • One third — the number of SMEs who say they continuously back up their systems’ data.
  • One — the number of staff members that hackers need to dupe in order to gain access to your business’ data
  • 63 — the number of data breaches the Office of the Information Commissioner was notified about in the first six weeks of mandatory data breach reporting.
  • 1,800,000 — the number of dollars you might have to cough up if you don’t comply with the mandatory data breach laws
  • $8,429 — the price of one Bitcoin (at the moment). Businesses often require the digital currency to send to hackers as a ransom payment.
  • 30 — the number of gigabytes of sensitive Department of Defence data lost by a small “mum and dad” business in a 2016 data breach
  • $14 million — the amount in compensation offered to users of Ashley Madison after the adultery site’s famous 2015 data breach.
  • Three — the number of really weirdly named ransomware attacks that devastated global businesses in 2017.
  • Five — the number of minutes you need to read through the Australian Small Business Ombudsman’s cyber security guide for small businesses.
