National Cybersecurity Awareness Week was opened this week to help Australians better understand cybersecurity risks and the simple steps they can take to protect themselves and their children online.
There are simple tips that all Australians are encouraged to follow for better online security. These include:
Install and renew your security software and set it to scan regularly;
Turn on automatic updates on all your software, including your operating system and other applications;
Think carefully before you click on links and attachments, particularly in emails and on social networking sites;
Regularly adjust your privacy settings on social networking sites;
