This week marks National Cybersecurity Awareness Week, a Government initiative held annually which helps raise awareness of some of the risks we can run into in the online space.

We all use the internet for many things – socialising, researching, learning, banking, shopping…. the list goes on, but how do we know we are being safe? How do we know that our details are secure? How do we know that our kids are protected online?

 

Stay Smart Online is a Government website which helps educate Australians on internet security – there are many tips and tricks provided so if internet security is something you would like to know more about, this is the place to start!

  • So many risks, and you can be cyber-bullied no matter what age. So important to know what our kids are doing online.


    • Thank you for writing you can be cyber bullied at any age, dont read that a lot these days it seems to only focussed on kids and teens. Sincerely from a cyber bully victim aged 40 (my bully was older than me)



      • Agreed, cyber bullying can occur at any age, wish their was more out there for adult cyber bullying.
