Cyber Safety



Cybersmart - Cyber-Safety Materials for Kids, Teens, Parents and Schools

The Cybersmart program is a national cybersafety education program managed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), as part of the Australian Government’s commitment to promoting online safety for children and young people.

SCAMwatch - Information on how to prevent being Scammed.

SCAMwatch is a website run by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC). The aim of SCAMwatch is to provide information to consumers and small business about how to recognise, avoid and report scams. Scams that are reported to SCAMwatch will be analysed by the ACCC. Many scams originate overseas or take place over the internet, making them very difficult to track down and prosecute. If you lose money to a scam, it is unlikely that you will be able to recover your loss. The ACCC publishes this website to help consumers recognise scams because prevention is definitely a better option when it comes to scams. The ACCC's roles extend beyond preventing scams and include other areas of consumer protection, infrastructure regulation, cartels and other forms of anti-competitive conduct. The ACCC also works with state and territory fair trading agencies and other government agencies to promote awareness in the community about scams.
