The online world has given birth to new industries and exciting possibilities, it’s profoundly changed our lives, but there’s a catch. Like all human endeavours there are those that seek to make the world a better place and others just wanting to take advantage of its vulnerabilities… and then there’s just simple human error. The fear is real, and with the internet especially, the solutions are complex.
Is your business at risk? Are you, your staff, your clients, and your assets adequately protected? Join the conversation over dinner to find out for yourself.
Synergy48 Knowledge Sharing Dinners are only open to Synergy48 Group members, their clients and invited guests.
Ticket price $94
Food for thought!
- 87% OF ALL CYBER INSURANCE CLAIMS STEMMED FROM SOME TYPE OF HUMAN ERROR OR BEHAVIOR

The National Data Breach scheme commenced on 22 February 2018: In less than six weeks there were 63 data breach notifications to the OAIC.
- In just over half (51%) of the notifications, the cause was human error, while 44% were the result of malicious or criminal attack and 3% the result of system faults.
- The top five industry sectors that reported breaches were health service providers (15), legal, accounting and management services (10), finance (including superannuation) (8), education (6) and charities (4).
- The highest percentage of personal information involved in the breaches related to contact information (78%).
- Significantly, 20 of the 63 notifications related to only one person being affected, while 57 of the 63 applications (90%) related to less than 1000 people.
You’ll be part of an intimate group of SME founders, CEOs and directors over dinner when our 4 experts from different disciplines will break the challenges down into bite size chunks.

About the Knowledge Sharing Dinner Series
Information is Noise – Knowledge is Power
A 2016 survey of 300 business leaders from 16 countries conducted by CIMA and AICPA found that senior leaders are struggling to make the right decisions, with 72% of organizations admitting to at least one strategic initiative failing in the last three years as a result of flaws in their decision making processes.
A top cause of poor decision making identified in the study is information overload, with 36% saying their organization is not coping with information overload, and that it is making life harder for those charged with decision making because they are unable to extract relevant information and turn it into insight.
The dilemma is clear: on the one hand, business leaders receive too much information, while on the other hand, they don’t get enough knowledge and insights to make sound decisions and develop new capacities for action.
Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline distinguishes information sharing (giving and receiving data, facts and opinions) from knowledge sharing, with knowledge sharing occurring when people are genuinely interested in helping one another improve decision making and develop new capacities for action.
Every dinner in the series is based around Four Guiding Principles:
- Singular Focus: Every dinner focuses on exploring a specific business issue which SMEs have consistently identified as a significant concern.
- Multiple perspectives: We bring together four experts from four different industries/professions to provide multiple perspectives on the issue.
- Relevance and Significance: You’ll have the opportunity to explore the issue in depth with each of the experts to determine how it applies to your business.
- Capacity for Action: You’ll leave with a clear and prioritised action plan developed for YOUR business – NOT a generic “To Do” list.
