Fight­ing cy­ber-crime

Wanneroo Times - - News -

PEO­PLE can find out how to pro­tect their busi­ness from cy­ber-crime at a free sem­i­nar in Wan­neroo on Fri­day.

The City of Wan­neroo and Wan­neroo Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion are part­ner­ing with cy­ber-se­cu­rity ex­perts from across Perth to teach ef­fec­tive ways of min­imis­ing the risk of cy­ber-at­tacks.

Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said small busi­nesses were be­ing tar­geted by cy­ber-crim­i­nals.

“We need to en­sure our lo­cal busi­nesses are pre­pared and in­formed about cy­ber-se­cu­rity and that they are armed with prac­ti­cal solutions they can im­ple­ment in their busi­ness to guard against at­tacks,” she said.

As­so­ci­a­tion busi­ness li­ai­son of­fi­cer Lau­ren McGee said the sem­i­nar would fo­cus on the ‘pro­tect, in­form, ed­u­cate, re­port and solutions’ (PIERS) method­ol­ogy.

“The PIERS event is a two-way plat­form where busi­nesses are en­cour­aged to voice their con­cerns and re­ceive sup­port from the ex­perts,” she said.

The event runs from 1pm to 5pm at En­ter­prise House in Wan­neroo.
