Dear NSW Chamber of Commerce/Business Chamber
On 19 May, the ACCC and the Institute of Public Accountants hosted a small business scams and cybercrime forum in Melbourne.
The aim of the forum was to help small business operators and stakeholders understand the scam and cybercrime risks small businesses face, and how they can best protect themselves.
The event featured three expert speakers and a question-and-answer panel discussion.
Some of the topics and questions covered during the forum included:
What characteristics and management practices make a business vulnerable to scams and cybercrime?
How can time-poor small businesses protect themselves from cyber threats in few minutes a day?
Real life cybercrime and identity theft case studies and helpful hints.
A video of the forum is now available on the ACCC YouTube channel.
If you are a small business operator, adviser or regulator, we encourage you and your staff to watch this video to learn more about the risks that have the potential to impose significant financial, legal and reputational costs on small businesses and their customers.
We’d also greatly appreciate your support in promoting the availability of this video as an educational resource to your members. You can do this by promoting the ACCC YouTube Channel forum video link: http://bit.ly/1BLiy7T.
Thank you in advance for your support with this small business education initiative.
