The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, has turned himself into an online superhero in a bid to kill off spam, malware, hacking and other online abuse.
Partnering with major Australian and international companies, peak bodies and community groups, the federal government has launched National E-security Awareness Week, with the aim being to highlight the simple steps Australians should take to stay smart online.
"Millions of Australians are now using the internet for a whole range of everyday activities. The internet is a very useful and entertaining medium, however it is important that people stay smart and think about online security," Senator Conroy said.
It's the Queen's Birthday today ! (a public holiday). I have marked in my diary to attend an e-awareness session for seniors at 10 am tomorrow at 280 Pitt Street. I've got a free movie voucher. Perhaps I can take in the delights of the cinema after being alerted to the dangers for old fogey's online.
