De­fence on the cy­ber front

Wanneroo Times - - Business -

PEO­PLE learnt how to re­spond to a cy­ber at­tack dur­ing a re­cent work­shop in Wan­neroo.

The Cy­ber At­tack-Re­sponse Drill pro­gram was run by Cy­ber8Lab, the Wan­neroo Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion and Aus­tralian Women in Se­cu­rity Net­work Perth chap­ter.

It was at­tended by peo­ple from var­i­ous sec­tors, in­clud­ing academia, cy­ber se­cu­rity, food in­dus­tries, health­care and me­dia.

The ex­er­cise at the Hy­brid 935 fo­cused on post-in­ci­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tions and anal­y­sis of dif­fer­ent types of cy­ber at­tacks, such as phish­ing, wire­less in­tru­sion and web de­face­ment.

Cy­ber8Lab founder Daisy Sin­clair said the three or­gan­i­sa­tions col­lab­o­rated to de­liver the pro­gram for the first time in WA.

“Together we have suc­cess­fully brought in the most sought-after, hands-on skills and knowl­edge based on re­al­life cy­ber at­tack sce­nar­ios into this mar­ket,” she said.

As­so­ci­a­tion busi­ness li­ai­son of­fi­cer Lau­ren McGee said it was par­tic­u­larly ben­e­fi­cial for small-busi­ness own­ers.
