CryptoAustralia is a leading authority promoting a society where Australians can defend their privacy.
Founded by six privacy and security enthusiasts in early 2017, its founders came up with the idea of an organisation that could empower privacy concerned citizens through hands-on education and research relating to digital privacy and online security; giving Australians a practical way to overcome their privacy and security challenges. Their goal is to bring privacy and security experts to people in need, regardless of their professional background.
Cybercrime is unfortunately, on the rise. “Australians are reporting incidents of cybercrime about every 10 minutes... More than 13,500 reports of cybercrime have been received by the Australian Cyber Security Centre since July 2019. Cyber security incidents cost Australian businesses up to $29 billion each year.” Your firm is only as strong as your weakest link and sometimes all it can take for a cyber breach to occur is one of your clients or colleagues responding to a suspect email. This training can help you and your colleagues identify potential threats, how to avoid them and what to do if you do experience hacking.
To receive one CPD unit, you are required to watch two training videos and complete two short quizzes. Each video is 30 minutes in length and you can watch them in your own time. After the videos, you will be required to complete a short quiz to receive your certification.
We care about our clients. As the leading innovator in legal technology, we aim to provide you with easy, innovative ways to grow your business.
