For most of us, the internet opens up new opportunities. We can shop, bank, research, work and connect when and where we want to. But the online world can also give criminals opportunities to steal money, information or identities.
Many Australians may not be aware of the risks we face in cyberspace – but the good news is that you can take simple steps to better protect your personal and financial information online.
When you share things online you may be sharing with people you do not know or trust. Once a message, photo or video has been shared, you also won’t be able to control where it goes.
Financial losses, scams, identity theft and fraud are some of the more serious issues that you might face if you don’t have things in place to manage how you share your personal information online.
Protect Your Business
If your organisation uses the internet – for email, banking, running a website or other activities – you need to know how to keep your information and assets safe.
Many small businesses don’t realise they could be an attractive target for hackers – but the good news is that you can take simple steps to protect your business and customers. You may not think that your business could be a target, but cybercriminals are motivated by a variety of factors – most of them lead back to money!
Cybercriminals make money through holding data to ransom, stealing funds from bank accounts, identity theft and sale of stolen information. Profits from these activities are highly lucrative and can be fairly easily obtained from unprotected businesses.
Become a Partner
Stay Smart Online is a partnership across industry, government and the community, aimed at building cyber security awareness in Australia.
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.
Becoming an official Stay Smart Online partner allows you to associate your business with a recognised and trusted public brand, demonstrating your capability and commitment to cyber security.
