Cyber Security Awareness Month 2023 – Be Cyber Wise, Don’t Compromise

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, a time for all Australians to improve their cyber security knowledge and take action to protect their information and devices.

The theme for Cyber Security Awareness Month 2023 is ‘be cyber wise – don’t compromise’. We’re encouraging you to take 4 simple steps to be cyber wise:

  1. Update your devices regularly
  2. Turn on multi-factor authentication
  3. Backup your important files
  4. Use passphrases and password managers.

Even these small steps make can make significant improvements to your cyber security. Most cybercriminals exploit knowledge gaps to compromise your devices and information, so becoming more cyber wise, and sharing your knowledge with friends and family, can help us all stay more secure online.

Cyber security is everyone’s responsibility. We can all do our bit to be cyber wise.
