Digital technology is a powerful driving force, revolutionising business, lowering costs and extending reach. It can also help businesses deliver products and services faster, respond to changing consumer demands, and welcome new customers locally and internationally who want to buy online. For some businesses, however, grappling with new technology brings challenges, particularly for small business who are already time and resource poor.

The Small Business Digital Champions Project will help small businesses to be more effective, competitive and ultimately, more profitable.

Over two years, NDS will be providing information, practical advice and guidance for small businesses on how to successfully adopt digital technologies when working in the disability sector. Information and services will be delivered through a variety of channels, including face-to-face and online for free.

The project will cover the following topics and much more:

  • Technology trends and technology adoption
  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Online content development
  • Social media and digital marketing
  • Websites
  • Online security and data privacy
  • Digital best practice guides
  • Online digital planning
  • Digital training
  • Coaching and support for going online

The first three topic areas, as voted by you in our recent survey, are:

The Australian Cyber Security Centre's Small Business Survey

Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Small Business Survey will help the ACSC’s new dedicated technical advice team for small businesses better understand how Australian small businesses operate.

By receiving input directly from small businesses, the ACSC can ensure the technical advice we provide is actionable, relevant and tailored to the small business environment.

The survey is 9 minutes long, anonymously submitted, and does not ask for sensitive or personal information unless participants opt in for a follow up survey (in which case an email is required to send the link). It will be open until late September 2019 and the information small businesses provide will directly inform the topics of advice, the priority/schedule of that advice, and how we tailor it to the small business environment.
