On 22 January 2021, Gridware consultant Dr Robert Fearn appeared in a segment by Nine Network’s A Current Affair.

The segment canvassed different ways in which scammers and hackers are undertaking sophisticated email-base scam operations to siphon large sums of money from everyday small businesses in Australia.

A Current Affair spoke to various business owners who have been victims of such scams and highlighted some suggestions from Robert on everyday tips that businesses can apply to increase their cyber security significantly.

Robert helped viewers cut through the complexity of cybersecurity to deliver take home messages that can benefit a wide audience of people.
