The Australian government estimates the cybercrime hit to the Australian economy at a conservative $1 billion a year. So it instructed cyber spies at the Australian Signals Directorate to offensively hack organised crime attacking Australians.


Meanwhile, the insurance industry has woken to the fact that the next round of attacks will be worse. In the wake of disruptions such as WannaCry and Petya, global insurer Lloyds is provisioning for a devastating $US53 billion ($A68 billion) blow to the world economy.


But the challenge for cybersecurity experts is to wake their customers – and their customers’ customers – to the reality of doing business in the 21st century’s cyber war zone.


With the sponsorship of cybersecurity vendors Mimecast and Sophos, we assembled some of Australia’s top cybersecurity partners to dig deep into what the channel is doing to protect Australians from cybervillains.
