Staying secure while on the move

26 April 2017

With 25.4 million mobile handset subscribers in Australia, mobile devices are becoming increasingly more important in the communications landscape.

Today smartphones and tablets are used for hundreds of tasks, from shopping and socialising online to conducting banking and working remotely.

Added to that, we are increasingly using more than one mobile device – with the average Australian household expected to have 24 devices connected online by 2019.

But as we move towards more convenient and portable technology are we investing in security measures to keep these devices safe? 

Mobile devices are basically small portable computers. Just like your computer at home they can be hacked, infected with malware and, if unsecured, provide access to your personal or work information.

Stay Smart Online has a range of guidance for both individuals and business on securing your devices and information; and using devices safely.
