The Australian Government's Stay Smart Online initiative has developed a range of short Guides to help individuals and businesses put in place some basic online security habits.
Each Guide includes simple and practical information about how to protect our online activities, whether at home, work, school or on the go.
The Guides have been developed in collaboration with the New Zealand Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet along with our partners Australia Post, Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited, Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, NBN, Westpac and Telstra.
Protect yourself in 8 steps!
This Guide provides tips and techniques for you to stay secure when working, socialising or just browsing online.
My Guide covers eight key areas: privacy; passphrases; suspicious messaging; surfing safely; online finances and payments; tablets and mobiles; backups and protection; and reporting.
