Reverse the threat is now live! It's not too late to join in.

=It's officially Stay Smart Online Week and things look a little different. Some of Australia's biggest organisations have joined us in reversing their websites and social media to black and white to draw attention to cyber security so we can reverse the threat of cybercrime, together.

Learn more about the themes
This year's campaign focuses on four key areas to help individuals and businesses stay one step ahead of cybercriminals by improving personal and organisational cyber security:

  • ·       PASSWORDS. Passwords are your first line of defence against cybercriminals. Make sure you use a different and strong password on all of your accounts.
  • ·       PHISHING. Phishing are fake messages that try to trick you into giving out your personal details. If you receive a suspicious message do not click on any links or open any attachments.
  • ·       UPDATES. Updating your software is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself online. These updates add new features, install bug fixes and fix security holes that could let cybercriminals in.
  • ·       PUBLIC WI-FI. Be wary when using public Wi-Fi. Without the right protection, cybercriminals could see your information, so don't do online banking or online shopping or send sensitive information.

Together we can reverse the threat of cybercrime.
