Business Breakfast
with Dr. Ian Martinus
Divider Text

Our Business Breakfasts are back in person!

Did you know 43% of cyber attacks are actually aimed at small businesses with an average cost of $10,000 (Symantec, Internet Security Threat report, 2016) and yet many small business owners are often unaware of the risks their business may be exposed to?

Join Stirling Business Association members and Dr. Ian Martinus, Director of WA AustCyber Innovation Hub for our Business Breakfast and 'in-person' networking event.

Ian will be sharing:

  • why small business is vulnerable to cyber-attack, with examples of SME attacks
  • what you can do to secure your business
  • what is 'Social Engineering' and the basis of a cyber attack
  • the economic impact of attacking small business (the critical infrastructure of Australia) and the backdoors they leave wide open

Guests will also have the opportunity to ask Ian their questions in our usual relaxed and informal breakfast format.
