Cyber Security – Protecting your Business

12 September 2023

Can companies be fined for having poor security? Can you stop theft of your work? Are architects at risk? How do you protect your business? Join the ACA on Wednesday 27 September for a special deep dive into cyber security with Frances Russell of FooForce.


Businesses are increasingly accountable for the security they implement. Clients expect you to be able to keep their data safe and never suffer downtime due to a security incident. Regulatory bodies, the courts and governments are increasingly vigilant, so businesses are being held accountable for the security (or lack of it) in their IT environment. FooForce Managing Director Frances Russell will present on essential information including the following:

  • Can companies be fined for having poor security?
  • Do architects and engineers have special risks?
  • Can you stop theft of your work?
  • How do you know if you are at risk?
  • Do you have an incident response plan?
  • Do you know how you will recover?
  • Questions every board or business owner needs to answer


Frances Russell is CEO and Managing Director of FooForce, a leading Australian managed service and security provider with offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Frances is ISACA certified: CISA CISM CRISC and has 20+ years experience advising organisations on business risk, IT strategy and security.
