As the number of cyber attacks around the world continues to grow, organisations of all sizes, including not-for-profits, are faced with a very real threat. So, how prepared are you? According to ACSC Annual Cyber Threat Report July 2019 to June 2020, over 2,200 cybersecurity incidents were reported by Australian businesses between 2019 and 2020.
