Today, cyber attacks are becoming more frequent, sophisticated and damaging, so protecting your data has never been more important. Recently, there have been some high profile local cases, with Optus, Medibank and Woolworths all experiencing significant data breaches. This has prompted regulators in Australia to increase penalties for serious or repeated breaches from $2.2 million, up to a maximum of $50 million.
Today, organisations are facing a multitude of uncertainty and potential risks that are seemingly everywhere. Ongoing rapid technological advances are increasing the potential for large scale data breaches. Thankfully, a flexible and dynamic risk management approach can do much to mitigate this heightened and ever-evolving level of risk.
For local governments, managing occupational health and safety (OHS) effectively across many departments can be challenging. With multiple work sites operating at any given time, all with their own unique set of conditions, tasks and hazards, a robust, adaptable and easy to use system is essential to keep staff and the public safe.
In today’s post-pandemic world, a strong risk culture within your organisation is more important than ever. But risk profiles have changed significantly since COVID-19 hit. So, how do we define risk culture today, and why does it matter?
There’s no doubt that 2021 presented some serious challenges for the vast majority of people around the world. As we continued to battle through the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses were also faced with a host of other challenges, from cyber attacks and extreme weather events, to business interruptions due to staff shortages and disruptions to the supply chain.
