About Us

Our Approach

Our vision is to stop cybercriminals making money from ordinary people – your customers. We want to help every company begin the journey of managing cyber risk, and taking responsibility for actively combating cyber threats. We understand that cybersecurity is very complicated and not that interesting to most people – that’s why we’ve designed the 100 Point Cyber Check TM to be easy to use, providing you (and your board) with a level of assurance that you have taken all “reasonable steps” to protect your customers’ data. The 100 Point Cyber Check TM is owned and operated by Cyberstronomy Pty Ltd.

Our Story

Our business grew from our frustration in seeing businesses making the same mistakes over and over. We would get angry every time we would see a headline about “yet another” data breach, or the billions of dollars that cybercriminals siphon off our economy every year. We decided to fight back, and offer our distilled knowledge to you at low cost. The questions used in the 100 Point Cyber Check TM are based on research undertaken at Melbourne’s La Trobe University.
