Stay Smart Online Week, 9-13 October 2017

15 August 2017

There are simple steps you can take to protect your information online. Join us during Stay Smart Online Week to learn more.

“Am I doing enough? Should I be doing more? Buying more?”

“These things are definitely at the back of your mind. It's like putting your head in the sand really. But it's silly. It's really an ignorant approach because, you know, the effects it could have on the business are mind blowing. The approach should be about being proactive not being reactive, you know?”

Small business owner, Sydney

The internet plays a huge role in modern life. We use it to shop, bank, research, work and connect. We access it via our phones, tablets and computers, and we use it at home, work and just about everywhere we can get a connection.

But we don’t always understand the consequences of poor cyber security. Often we find the advice we need after we’ve been affected by a cyber incident rather than before, and sometimes we outsource responsibility to the ‘IT person’ because it all seems too hard to understand.

The good news is that by doing some simple, tiny things, you can dramatically improve how you protect your personal and financial information, and recover if you get caught in a cyber incident.

This year’s Stay Smart Online Week (9–13 October) is all about simple steps to online safety.

Stay Smart Online Week will promote easy to follow, practical advice to help you and your stakeholders stay safe online and learn what to do if things go wrong.

In the meantime, sign up for our Alert Service to make sure you never miss out on important news about online threats and how they can be managed.
