Safer Internet Day 2023

February 7th 2023

Safer Internet Day is a global event that brings together communities, families, schools and organisations from more than 200 countries to help create safer online spaces.

This worldwide initiative is celebrating 20 years in 2023, making it a great time to reflect as well as look forward.

Technology has evolved dramatically in the past two decades and the benefits have been huge. These developments have also exposed us to many risks with real-world impacts, making online safety awareness even more important.  

That’s why we are calling on Australians to Connect. Reflect. Protect. 

Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media in positive ways.

You are all (hopefully) by now aware of the recent data breach suffered by Optus and their customers, both past and present. There are so many reports and instruction emails and posts being sent to Optus customers and in the general domain that it can seem quite a daunting prospect to reign it all in and take adequate steps to protect yourself.
