Government and regulation

Digital Aid Online has compiled a list of resources to help small business, community-based or not-for-profit organisation’s get started with improving their cyber security. Some of the information below is for larger organisations and government and so may not apply to your organisation. It is included here as a useful reference and potential resource if you have already taken some steps and would like to go further. There are links to information about privacy and reporting a data breach because all organisations should be aware of their obligations to protect personal data and take this seriously. Digital Aid Online will keep adding to this list of resources over time and hopes to eventually include services provided by Australian companies that can help you.
