Did you know that it’s Stay Smart Online Week in Australia?

As it’s now Stay Smart Online week so there’s no better time to review how good our own cyber security is especially with all the threats out there. This year, the theme of Stay Smart Online week is ‘Cyber safety from the lounge room to the board room’. The focus is on how one’s online behaviour in their personal life can also have a great impact in their workplace. Businesses are encouraged to engage with their employees to teach them about how behave safely online as cybercrime is now costing the Australian economy $1 billion a year.

Dan Tehan who is the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Cyber Security, says,

“There have been more than 74,000 cybercrimes reported since November 2014, with online scams and fraud accounting for 42 per cent. These statistics demonstrate the importance of every Australian taking responsibility for their own cyber security.”
