Cyber Regulation in Australia: How Lynden Group Helps SMEs/ SMBs Stay Protected

In today's digital age, the threat of cyber attacks is real and growing. As a result, Australian government regulators have made it clear that cyber security must be managed like any other high-priority business risk. For SMEs and SMBs, this can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. Lynden Group is here to help.

We are a certified agent for the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and an experienced cyber security advisor. Lynden Group provides executive and professional cyber security advice to its partners and customers. Our team of experts helps boards of directors understand their obligations and best practices for managing cyber security risks, ensuring that their organizations are well-prepared to manage cyber threats.

The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) has also developed a set of principles to guide directors in their responsibilities for protecting their organizations. These principles provide a framework for integrating cyber security into the overall governance of the organization, and our advisors can help ensure that your organization is following best practices and is well-prepared to manage cyber threats.

The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) is responsible for ensuring that organizations handle personal information in accordance with privacy laws. This includes protecting personal information from cyber threats. In order to comply with OAIC regulations, organisations must have adequate measures in place to secure personal information and respond to potential data breaches. Lynden Group’s team of cyber security experts can assist organisations in assessing their current cyber security measures and making any necessary changes to ensure they are meeting OAIC standards. Our advisors can provide guidance on privacy impact assessments, data breach response planning, and implementation of privacy management programs to help organizations become and stay compliant with OAIC regulations.

In addition, the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) requires certified auditors to identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial report. Lynden Group experts help auditors determine if cyber security may contribute to the susceptibility to misstatement and provide guidance on how to mitigate those risks.

Finally, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) released its CPS234 mandatory regulation, which requires financial services organizations to improve their information security capabilities. Our cyber advisors are experienced in helping organizations comply with CPS234 and implement it in the most practical manner.

In conclusion, Lynden Group is here to support SMEs and SMBs in Australia with all their cyber security needs. From board training and risk assessments to incident response planning and regulatory compliance, we have the expertise to help keep your organization protected.
