Risk, Technology & Cyber Security

You make 35,000 decisions every day.    Seems a bit high doesn’t it?

Take breakfast for example, you first decided you were hungry, then that you wanted to eat; you made a decision about food; its temperature; what to eat it out of; what to eat it with; and countless others.  You probably didn’t realise you made these decisions, let alone that you made a risk calculation and assessment beforehand.  These calculations were essentially automatic. 

35,000 doesn’t seem that much now does it. 

But in understanding risk it’s that calculation before each decision which determines the amount of risk you take on.  If you can remove some of those calculations through the use of technology and smart procedures, you can free yourself to focus on other matters and reduce your risk and protect your profits.

Let us help you understand your risk profile and start the conversation in your business to understand your risk, implement procedures and policies to minimise your risk and leverage technology to reduce your risk and increase productivity, profits and security.

Technology is the game changer.  It levels the playing field between big companies, small businesses and everything in between. 

With all technology’s uses and magic however, it comes with a ton of risk; most of which is passed onto you, the end user, to manage and most which you can’t even see.

Cyber security and cyber risk are the one of the largest risks to your business, and it usually gets the least amount of thought.  Gone are the days where you can just have antivirus on your computer and a password with 2 numbers and a capital letter and you are safe.

Everyone is a target for hackers and their attacks are getting more frequent, they highly targeted and extremely sophisticated.  Hackers are leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence to scale their attacks, target them worldwide and they are largely outside the jurisdiction of the Australian Courts.

Over 60% of small businesses report being the target of a cyber-attack and on average it takes 169 days for a business to notice or respond to a cyber-attack.  Could your business withstand 169 days with a cyber breach?  Could you afford the down time, recovery costs, the stress?

Let us help you understand the real cost to your business, livelihood and your life and get you started on managing the risk profile of your business.

Disputes come in all shapes and forms.

Some are simple (think fighting with your siblings as to what to watch on Netflix). Others not so much, and there’s generally not a parent around to settle the dispute or make a decision.

When real world disputes occur, not everyone plays nice and most play to win. It can be an isolating, lonely experience with high stress levels and little light at the end of the tunnel.

Before you can make that decision, it is important to understand the three main stages of a dispute. This enables you to establish where in the dispute timeline you are and what decisions need to be made.

How you deal with the dispute is a choice, and it is generally the most important decision you will make for the entirety of the dispute.
