SMEs
• Critical to NZ’s economy
– account for 97% of all enterprises in NZ
– employ around 30% of the working population
– generate more than a quarter (27.8%) of our GDP
• More SMEs taking advantage of the Internet
• Usually don’t have a dedicated IT person or department
• May rely on the internet to do business but may not have
the time nor expertise to understand security
• Higher risk tolerance
The use of technology in business
changes our risk landscape…
Technology is no longer simply a budget line or operational
issue—it is an enabler of virtually every strategy.
………..
Technological opportunities abound, but so do threats, including
cybersecurity risks, which will become the concern of a broader
group of executives as digitization touches every aspect of
corporate life.

security posture
A positive “Security
Culture” works better
than a “policing”
approach
