But what about the SMB? How to build a cyber security strategy for SMB


Andrew Johnson, Managing Director


Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Annual Cyber Threat Report for FY2021-2022 shows the average cost per cybercrime report is a staggering $39,000+ for small business and $88,000+ for medium business.

Small to medium businesses (SMB) are least prepared for cyber threats and least likely to recover from such detrimental losses.

The issues plaguing SMB business are different to larger corporates and enterprise, and their needs are unique. So too, should their approach to cybersecurity.

As managed service providers servicing these SMBs, what are you doing to help protect them?

Manage Protect will cover how to build a cyber security strategy for SMB, as well as what we can do to help partners better manage cybersecurity for their customers.

Door prize for members: $100 gift card
