Cybersecurity is not just a problem for ‘the IT guy

The recent AustCyber ‘The state of cyber fitness in Australian small businesses’ survey found most small business owners feel directly responsible for cyber risk. There is a recognition that cybersecurity is not just a problem for ‘the IT guy’. The College commissioned a cyber security incident management simulation program to unite the college community triumphing over the cyber crisis. In this presentation, we explain our journey in developing the simulation program, drawing members from the teaching faculties, administrative staff and IT to create realistic cyber incident scenarios. The objective is to challenge the status quo of ‘cyber as only an IT problem’.
