According to Professor Asha Rao, while many individuals don’t consider their data “important” enough to feel vulnerable to cyber security threats, it’s precisely that attitude that is preyed upon by cyber criminals.
The associate dean of mathematical sciences at RMIT University joins host Grace Ormsby on this episode of The nestegg Podcast to discuss the recent cyber attacks affecting the Australian government, the importance of remaining vigilant around cyber security, and the common scams that people should be wary of.
Professor Rao explains how automated technology makes cyber crime more profitable, why the pandemic has increased our exposure risk to such threats, and what to do if you think you’ve compromised your cyber security.
Thanks Professor Rao, for sharing your insights with the nestegg podcast team!
