This edition of Info Bites talks cyber protection, meets CMIB's Alanna Bontempelli, introduces our mortgage & finance services, takes a Drive for Neale Daniher and tells what happened to a million chicken nuggets on the Hume Highway!
5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CYBER SECURITY
Talk of cyber security and privacy is everywhere. Here are 5 things you need to know:
1) 70% of cyber-crime targets small businesses – and 60% of companies go out of business within one year of a data breach
2) A Telstra cyber security survey found almost 60 per cent of local organisations detected a security incident on at least a monthly basis in 2016
3) Every company that handles private data such as driving licence numbers, customer lists and credit cards should consider cyber insurance
4) Cyber insurance policies usually cover financial consequences of data loss and misappropriation, cyber-crime as well as expert advice and incident response teams
5) Most standard property and liability policies do not include coverage for cyber issues
MEET CMIB TEAM MEMBER - ALANNA
Alanna Bontempelli is one of our talented Account Managers. She looks after SME and Corporate clients and joined us in September 2016. Like many people, Alanna has been surprised at the number of people that have fallen into insurance as opposed to choosing it as their original career.
"I love working in the industry, getting to know our clients and making life long friends. If I wasn’t working for CMIB, I would be probably finishing the psychology course I started when I finished school. In my sparetime, I like cooking, catching up with friends and keeping active."
