National Cyber Security Awareness Week

May 27, 2013

May 20-24 in Australia marks the National Cyber Security Awareness Week for this year, a timely reminder for organisations to strengthen their vulnerability management.

Australia Post is a major supporter of the Awareness Week this year, and chief operating officer Ewen Stafford says the organisation is proud to be part of the initiative, given the rise of online shopping.

"With more than ten million Australians now shopping online and Australia Post delivering the majority of these purchases, we're committed to raising awareness around cyber security so our customers can protect their private information when using their computer, mobile device or smart phone," Mr Stafford said in a May 20 statement.

As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Week, the federal government has launched the Stay Smart Online website, which aims to educate Australians about managing risks and protecting private information successfully while online.

The Awareness Week is a government initiative that takes place every year, held in partnership with key industry, community and consumer organisations in Australia.

Cyber security is promoted in a range of events all around the country including seminars, webinars, media, social media and other mediums, with nearly 1,400 partners participating in the initiative.

It's a great opportunity to assess the security of your own organisation and develop better policies for the prevention of cyber attacks.

Penetration testing is one method that can help you to improve your organisation's cyber security.
