Small Business Cyber Security Guide

This guide has been developed by the Australian Government to help small businesses protect themselves from the most common cyber security incidents. IT Help uses much of the information in this guide to develop our security recommendations.

​A cyber security incident that impacts a small business can be devastating. Unfortunately, we see the impact of cyber security incidents on small business with increasing frequency.​

​Luckily, cyber security doesn’t have to be difficult. There are simple measures that, if understood and implemented, can significantly reduce the impact of the most common cyber security incidents.​

​We understand that owners and operators of small businesses don’t have much time to spend on understanding the complexities of the internet or establishing complicated responses to potential risks. But we also know that cyber security will allow small businesses to grow, innovate, and find new ways of creating value for their customers.​
