One out of every 10 minutes, an Australian small business is attacked by a cyber threat.

Small business is the target of 43% of all cybercrimes in 2022, according to a Global Risk Survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The same report found that a cybercrime targeting a business occurs once every seven minutes in Australia, there was a 13 percent increase in cybercrimes reported last year, and only 5 percent of businesses’ data folders are properly protected.

There was also a dramatic rise in the cost per cybercrime report to over $39,000 for small businesses, $88,000 for medium businesses, and over $62,000 for large businesses in the 2022 financial year, representing an average increase of 14 percent over the previous year, according to the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s annual report.

This average amount will increase next year with Australia introducing tougher data breach penalties in response to the devastation of the Optus breach. This legislation plans to increase the penalty for serious or repeated data privacy breaches to $50 million, or 30% of a company’s adjusted turnover in the relevant period, whichever is greater – a significant increase from the former penalty amount of $2.22 million.
