The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association shares about a cybercrime report that will be of interest to many small businesses in Australia.

The Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner has published a report and factsheet that examines the experiences and perceptions of NSW small business owners and cybercrime.

Around half of the businesses surveyed felt their limited online presence meant that they’re protected against cybercrime. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. The cost of cybercrime to businesses in Australia is rising exponentially, costing Australians an estimated $1 billion each year.

The ACCC’s Scamwatch website continues to receive many reports of scams against small business, such as ransomware and fake invoices.
