The internet has become part of our lives for socialising, sharing information, shopping, banking and doing business. This means we need to manage our financial and personal information to stay safe and secure online.
Stay Smart Online Week
Stay Smart Online Week aims to help Australians using the internet – whether at home, at work or at school – understand the simple steps they can take to protect their personal and financial information online.
Stay Smart Online Week 2014 was the seventh consecutive annual event conducted by the Australian Government in partnership with around 1,700 organisations across the private sector, the community sector and all levels of government.
The2014 theme - 'On The Go' - reflected the importance of staying safe and secure online while using mobile devices when social networking, banking, shopping, and navigating the internet.
Stay Smart Online Week 2014 also marked the launch of ‘Do You Stay Smart Online?’, the song to help Australians stay safe and secure online.
