The tech world is abuzz with the news, and it is an exciting time for the BERT team, with a stellar launch in 2018.
Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said it was great to see the Aussie innovation certified to carry the Australian Made logo. “The Australian Made Campaign is proud to offer the country’s most comprehensive online product directory of genuine Australian products, and BERT’s Workplace Safety and Risk Management software is an exciting first,” Mr Harrison said.
“This is the icing on the cake,” says Martin Stow director and safety advocate. “The Australia Made campaign is a reflection of integrity, and we are so proud to be an approved part of it.”
According to Australia Made sources, there is a direct correlation between consumer purchasing behavior and employment, prosperity and growth.
So just why is this new Aussie product impressing industries and government organizations?
Many businesses aren’t meeting their workplace safety requirements, which leaves them wide open for both tragedy and harsh consequences. Traditionally workplace safety auditing or recording is done via a paper and file system. Software and applications available are often expensive and time-consuming. BERT has disrupted and created a seamless product that has simplicity at the heart of it. All you need is your smart phone- it is simple and is saving organisations thousands of dollars.
In 2018 BERT has taken a Victorian country council to a paperless system in various departments. It is estimated that with a business of 12 employees the product can save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on resources.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?

Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
