How can I stay safe online?
Staying safe online is more important than ever, and there are a few tips you can follow to protect your information.
Always be careful when receiving messages or clicking links from an unknown sender. If in doubt, it's safer not to click any unknown links or content from someone you don't know. It's important to check email addresses, phone numbers, previous messages and website addresses to make sure messages from an organisation are authentic.
The holidays can often see scammers use things like presents, gift cards or pretending to be family/friends to gain access to your information. It's important not to provide any financial details to anyone you don't know, and when in doubt, it's always safest not to click a link, open a message or continue a call.
Where can I go to learn more about cybersecurity?
There are lots of excellent resources where you can go to learn more about cybersecurity and how to protect your data. It's best to use verified government websites and sources, as these have the latest and most reliable information about staying safe online.
