Startup Success Series: Cybersecurity for Startups

The Startup Success Series is designed to provide insight and education on the topics that matter most to the founder community right now.

Each week Startup Victoria hosts a 1-hour webinar for the community, focusing on a specific topic. There’s only so much we can squeeze into 60 minutes, so we share resources from these webinars via these Startup Success Series articles.

The Startup Success Series is supported by LaunchVic.

LaunchVic is Victoria’s startup development agency. LaunchVic invests in organisations and projects that empower entrepreneurs to scale innovative companies and deliver new industry benefits to the Victorian economy.

It’s absolutely vital to have a strong cybersecurity-first approach for your startup. Data breaches can cripple a business, cause damage to your brand and result in significant loss of business for your startup. But where do you start and how much will it cost?

From keeping your passwords safe to making sure your servers are secure, there’s a huge amount to think about when it comes to your startup’s security. It can all feel a little overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the world of startups!

That’s why for this edition of the Startup Success Series, we’re speaking with cybersecurity expert Michelle Price, CEO @ AustCyber, to prepare you to keep your startup and data safe. We’ll cover:

  • Cybersecurity best practice
  • Useful tools, tips and tricks to keep your startup secure
  • How to store data and sensitive information
  • Much more!
