The Cyber Wardens program is a national initiative of the Council of Small Business Organisations of Australia (COSBOA), supported by the Australian Government and an industry alliance led by Telstra, CommBank and the Australian Cyber Security Centre, to help protect Australia’s 2.3 million small businesses from online threats.

The free, online cyber security education program takes just 45 minutes to complete and is available to all small businesses across the country.

Cyber Wardens are the digital equivalent of first aid officers or fire safety wardens. They are equipped to prevent, prepare, fight and help recover from a cyber attack such as the theft of customer data or intellectual property. Just as we physically protect ourselves by locking up our businesses and homes at night, the Cyber Wardens program will give small businesses the skills to shut their digital doors to lurking cyberthreats.
