Smart Online Week


Monday 2 June until Friday is Stay Smart Online Week and is a timely reminder for us to be conscious while using the internet.

The Australian Government has launched Stay Smart Online, which is jammed packed with information for all of us internet users on cyber security and safety issues. It is factual while being humours and gives lots of simple measures we can use to help protect themselves online.

It has information for:
Home Users
Business
Schools
Kids and Teens

I particularly like the section for kids and teens: Buddie uses fun ways to explore cybersecurity and matters of staying safe online. There are free resources that parents and teachers can use, and it has modules for primary and secondary students alike.

Some of the topics covered in more detail on their website include:
How to secure your computer
Tips on how to safely bank and shop online safely
Information for small businesses and families
Alert services - which explains recent online threats and how they can be managed.

Log on to the website and Facebook account to see all the details.

This campaign is a terrific way to get us thinking about protecting our personal and financial information online. "This year's theme, On the Go, reflects the importance of staying safe and secure online while using mobile devices for social networking, banking, shopping and navigating the internet".
