Become a partner

Stay Smart Online is a partnership across industry, government and the community, aimed at building cyber security awareness in Australia.

We need to work on cyber security 52 weeks a year – cyber security is everyone’s responsibility. Strong cyber security can only be achieved by all of us working together. That means government, the private sector and individuals.
—Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Cyber Security, the Honourable Dan Tehan MP

As more and more Australians spend their time and money online, ultimately organisations that have a good cyber security culture are the ones that people want to do business with.

Your business is your business—whether you are in business or managing someone else's, you are responsible for its success. 

Becoming a Stay Smart Online partner demonstrates your organisation's seriousness about online safety and security. Partners work with us to promote Stay Smart Online messages, develop information that is timely and relevant, and support our annual Stay Smart Online Week.

There are no financial obligations to becoming a partner – all that is needed is your organisation's commitment to raising cyber security awareness and spreading the Stay Smart Online messaging.
