Beyond the Flags – Keeping information and Data Safe
As we log into to Surf Life Saving IT systems in preparation for a busy season, or as part of our patrol duties, we ask you to think about keeping information and data safe by changing passwords regularly.
Today Assistant Federal Minister for Cyber Security Dan Tehan spoke about a cyber security attack on a defence contractors systems last year and the approach that has been taken to protect information and systems.
He said “cyber security is relevant for mums and dads along with small businesses and local communities, reporting a 20% jump in online scams and frauds targeting Australian citizens.
Amongst other things he recommended users to adopt stronger passwords, manage privacy settings more carefully and avoid scams in suspicious email messages.
So as a reminder to our members, we ask you change passwords regularly and adopt stronger passwords at home at work and at Surf.
