Cyber consultations

As businesses continue to expand their online presence they also increase their risk of becoming a target for cyber criminals. 

CyberCheck.Me is an initiative developed by the ECU Security Research Institute (ECUSRI) in partnership with the Cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup, North Metro TAFE and AustCyber to provide businesses with the basic precautions they can take to protect themselves against the loss of time, money, private information and reputational damage as a result of cyber-attack. 

If you have recently changed your business’ presence online or would like to ensure you are protected, book a free consultation by emailing cybercheckme@ecu.edu.au.
