Online safety is everyone’s responsibility. The internet provides access to a vast amount of information and instant communication around the world. It is now a part of everyday life for many people, however, there are always some that use this information to exploit others. Protection and education are key.
A useful guide for online safety, titled “Protect yourself in 8 steps” and prepared by the Australian Government, can be accessed from the Staysmartonline website at https://www.staysmartonline.gov.au/get-involved/guides/myguide
More resources are available from www.cyber.gov.au which is the Australian government website for cyber safety and reporting. Information is for individuals, business and government relating to cyber issues.
