Did you know that industry reports show that over 90% of the data breaches start with a single phishing email, and the most common cybersecurity threat in Australia is phishing?

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) reports that phishing is the most prevalent cyber-threat costing $3.8 million to Australian businesses. The average cost of a data breach is $201 per customer record, and a whopping 70% of consumers would stop doing business with a company if it experienced a data breach.

Do not let this happen to you.

Email Security and Phishing Protection

You may already have a spam filter protecting your mailboxes, but not every anti-phishing service is made equal. Built-in spam filters (Office 365, G Suite) and previous generation anti-spam services (IronPort, SpamAssassin) all leave your business unprotected from the sophisticated cyber attacks of today.

We can work with your staff to choose, introduce and operate the right combination of cybersecurity solutions and phishing awareness training for your business. Our experts can assist your staff throughout the full life-cycle of the products and services of your choice.


Payment Redirection Fraud and Business Email Compromise (BEC) Protection

Cybercriminals are more organised than ever and the days of the lone hacker is over. Your business might be at risk of the following schemes:

  • Bogus Invoices – Criminals pretend to be your suppliers requesting money transfers for payments to the fraudsters’ bank account.

  • Conveyancing Attacks – Your client and/or your conveyancer’s email account is hacked, and payments are ending up on the criminals’ bank account.

  • CEO Fraud – Attackers impersonate the company CEO or a senior executive of the company and send an email to employees in finance, requesting them to transfer money to the account they control.

  • Account Compromise – An executive or employee’s email account is hacked and used to request invoice payments to vendors listed in their email contacts. Payments are then sent to fraudulent bank accounts.

Beside the anti-fraud technologies we deliver, we also cover the human aspect as well. We have partnered up with law firms, data breach monitoring service providers and cyber insurance companies to provide you with the most comprehensive protection from cyber attacks.

Incident Response and Computer Forensic Analysis

Is a member of your staff’s email account gets hacked and criminals are tampering with the payment instructions? Is an employee leaking some intellectual property from your company? Is ransomware locking down your computers?

Iron Bastion’s computer forensics experts ensure that no digital evidence is overlooked and that it helps at every stage of an investigation or litigation, regardless of the number or location of the data sources.

Our forensic experts can come on-board to contain the incident and to reconstruct the chain of events. We help you to assess the scope of the data breach and make suggestions on preventing similar occurrences from happening again at your firm.


Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scanning

We offer penetration testing that not only identifies areas for improvement but also assesses the strength of your internal security posture. Our assessments help uncover vulnerabilities and will ensure your networks are properly segregated. Our experts can expose application vulnerabilities that may exist in some of your mission-critical applications.


Endpoint Security and Ransomware Protection

Ransomware is a type of online threat that allows criminals to find and lock down your most important data. They then offer to provide the decryption key only if you pay a hefty ransom. Cybercriminals often exploit a variety of threat vectors, including email, network traffic, user behaviour, and application traffic to insert ransomware. Without a comprehensive security strategy that secures all these vectors, you will almost certain to become a victim.

Our experts can work together with you to help you detect, prevent, and recover from ransomware attacks.
