68% of Aussie employees fear a cyber attack, new report finds

In the last year, there has been a 60% increase in ransomware attacks against Australian businesses. Now, a new report from a global risk management solutions provider reveals 68% of Australian employees believe the organisation they work for is vulnerable to an attack.

The findings come from the 2021 Australian Business Assurance Report by SAI Global, a global specialist in risk management solutions, based on a survey of 328 Australian employees.

SAI Global global cybersecurity expert Stephen Weekley says he believes the COVID-19 crisis caused a dramatic shift in the way we work, exposing businesses to a greater range of risks than ever before.
