Organizations in Australia and New Zealand are increasingly becoming a target for cybercriminals, with cybersecurity incidents growing at an unprecedented rate in the ANZ region. The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) reports that Australia has witnessed a 13% jump in cybercrime from the previous financial year, equating to an average of one report per seven minutes. Meanwhile, the New Zealand government’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) reports that they responded to 2001 cybersecurity incidents in Q2 of 2022, which is a 48% increase from Q2 of 2021.
In response to this ever-expanding cyberthreat landscape, the Australian government has introduced “the Essential Eight” security recommendations, which mandate reporting regulations for businesses. Following suit, the New Zealand government has also issued similar recommendations for enterprises operating in the country.
This white paper shares findings from a recent survey report by New Foundry, sponsored by Unitrends, where they surveyed over 100 Australian and New Zealand companies with over 250 employees. It depicts the state of preparedness of the ANZ business world for the government’s strict new cybersecurity obligations.
