NZers lax about cyber security

It's national Cyber Security Awareness Month, and New Zealand's laid-back attitude to online protection is in the firing line.

It's costing individuals and businesses a hefty price. In the past year cybercrime cost the country $257 million.

This includes loan hackers to organised criminal group.

Around 83 percent of New Zealanders have experienced a cyber-security breach, and 56 percent of businesses have been attacked at least once a year.

Aura Information Security general manager Peter Bailey spoke to Paul Henry about how to adopt a more proactive attitude to cybercrime and stop the hackers before they get us.
