7 December 2011 – iiNet, Australia’s second largest DSL broadband provider, has released a festive-themed online safety fact sheet to help internet users keep their cyber security in check over the holiday period.
Dubbed “iiNet’s 12 Days of Online Safety”, the factsheet offers 12 tips which can be followed in the lead up to Christmas to help minimise security risks when using personal computers and devices.
iiNet’s Compliance Manager, Rebecca Moonen, said school holidays and time off work at Christmas often means more time is spent surfing the web.
“It’s a busy and stressful time of year, so it’s important we all take a little extra care when shopping, accessing services like banking and keeping in touch with friends and family online,” Ms Moonen said.
“Following our 12 Days of Online Safety fact sheet is an easy way to up the ante on your cyber security measures, making way for a very merry Christmas.”
iiNet’s 12 Days of Online Safety can be downloaded from iiNet’s website – www.iinet.net.au/safety.
iiNet’s Online Safety Series was introduced to help Australians become more aware of safe practices when surfing the web. Each month, information will be released and made available for download from the iiNet website.
Topics covered by the safety series include social networking, online shopping, phishing emails and password security.
