October is Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM), a time for all Australians to improve their cyber security knowledge and take action to protect their information and devices.
The theme for 2023, ‘Be cyber wise – don’t compromise‘, encourages you to take 4 simple steps to be more cyber wise:
- update your devices regularly
- turn-on multi-factor authentication
- backup your important files
- use passphrases and password managers.
Our latest Annual Cyber Threat Report indicates that cybercrime is reported on average once every 7 minutes, a 13% increase from the previous financial year. Even these 4 simple steps can reduce the knowledge gaps cybercriminals rely on.
You can get involved by accessing the resources and guidance for Cyber Security Awareness Month 2023. Complete a quiz to test your cyber security knowledge, watch a video about Cyber Security Awareness Month and access guides to improve your cyber security.
