National E-security Awareness Week

National E-security Awareness Week has been launched to highlight simple steps Australians should take to protect themselves, their families and their businesses online.

The internet is a very useful and entertaining medium, however it is important that people stay smart and think about online security.

Here are five tips for creating a more secure online environment:
1. Install, use and update your security software at home.
2. Use strong passwords and change them regularly.
3. Use common sense when sharing personal information online.
4. Think before you click - if it looks too good to be true it probably is!
5. Be smart and stay informed and visit http://www.staysmartonline.gov.au/
