Cyber security is everyone’s responsibility. The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) helps Australians strengthen their cyber defences and protect themselves from online threats. The ACSC has released a new online learning platform, which provides simple steps to help protect Australian businesses and individuals online.

Although technology has made our lives easier, it has the potential to create ways for cybercriminals to attack. This is why it’s more important than ever to ensure you’re protected online. With the ACSC’s resources, it’s easy to learn simple steps to protect yourself from the most common cyber security incidents.

Some of the new resources include:

  • Small Business Cyber Security Guide
  • Personal Cyber Security Guides (First Steps Guide, Next Steps Guide and Advanced Steps Guide)
  • How to use the internet securely – A guide for seniors
  • Cyber Security quizzes.

The new online learning resources have been written with all levels of cyber literacy in mind. There are guides for people just starting out in improving their cyber security, to those more advanced in their knowledge and who want to take their cyber security to the next level.

Some of the key topics within the resources include:

  • updating your devices
  • setting and performing regular backups
  • turning on multi-factor authentication
  • practical ways to protect yourself online.
