Abacus helps raise cyber awareness

Staff Reporter 4 minute read

By: Staff Reporter

Abacus has thrown its support behind the federal government’s National Cyber Security Awareness Week, which runs until Friday, 11 June 2010.

Industry body chief executive Louise Petschler urged all Australian internet users to adopt simple online practices to help improve online security.

"Credit unions and building societies are committed to raising the awareness of their members, communities and the general public of the online security risks and the steps people can take to protect themselves when online,” Ms Petschler said.

"Awareness and vigilance is the key,” she said.

Cyber Awareness week aims to promote six easy tips for better online security:

1. Install security software and update it regularly.
2. Turn on automatic updates so that all your software receives the latest fixes.
3. Get a stronger password and change it at least twice a year.
4. Stop and think before you click on links or attachments.
5. Stop and think before you share any personal or financial information about yourself or your friends and family.
6. Know what your children are doing online. Make sure they know to stay safe and encourage them to report anything suspicious.
