Stay Smart Online

The Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Stay Smart Online program was first established in 2006. Today the program involves a community of over 95,000 followers who subscribe to our Alert service and follow us on Facebook, all committed to sharing online safety information.

Stay Smart Online gives Australians the skills and knowledge to be more secure and confident in the digital age. The program delivers online safety information that is simple to understand, helpful and relevant. We provide topical, and timely information on how home internet users and small businesses can protect themselves from cyber security threats such as software vulnerabilities, online scams, malicious activities and risky online behaviours.

The website and our other online channels, such as Facebook and YouTube, help us increase the reach of the program and meet the changing needs of Australian internet users.

The Stay Smart Online program and its services have grown to encompass a vibrant, multi-platform presence with unique and engaging content.
