Promoting cyber safety for senior Territorians
9 Oct 2018
As part of Cyber Security Awareness Month, the NT government is running free Be Cyber Smart presentations to support the community to better protect against cyber security threats. Presentations are taking place in Darwin and Alice Springs for local businesses and not-for-profit organisations throughout October. There are also presentations specifically designed to promote awareness of cyber safety for senior Territorians and which aim to provide advice on protecting their personal technology at home from cyber attacks. Attendees can learn about the tools and practical measures they can take to better protect their personal information.
Cyber security is a risk for everyone. If you get a phone call, email or text message promising something that sounds too good to be true or which contains a link to a website seeking personal information, remember to ‘Be Cyber Smart’ – stop and check it is real before you connect. If in any doubt, don’t.
Cyber Security Information Session at Spillett House
COTA NT will be hosting a Cyber Security Information Session at Spillett House in Darwin on the 18th October (10am – 11.30am). You are encouraged to bring along your personal mobile phones and devices to learn hands-on how to be “cyber smart”. Registrations can be made through Eventbrite or by calling COTA NT (8941 1004 – Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm).
