Awareness is the first step to protection

Every day online, we learn, work, stream movies, communicate, play games, do business, socialise and manage our finances. The internet has transformed our lives, making everything faster and more convenient. But it comes with some risks.

Cyber security and safety at Telstra is designed to provide you with a set of skills and tools, so you know how to handle every online situation with confidence.

What is cyber safety?

Recognising and dealing with unwelcome content and activity

Being cyber safe helps you and your kids feel confident online. It's being aware of, and reporting anything that feels threatening, like cyber bullying, cyber or image-based abuse, and illegal or restricted online content.  

The eSafety Commissioner is Australia's independent regulator for online safety. Their role is to help safeguard you from online harm and promote more positive experiences.

At Telstra, we support this cause by offering you tools to set up family filters, block inappropriate content and stay on top of active scams.

What is cyber security?

Proactive ways to defend your devices and data

It starts with good cyber hygiene: verifying your identity when you log in, good password protection and regularly updating your devices. If you need more comprehensive tools, there's additional security software to suit your needs.

Security software helps block known malicious websites and reduces cyber threats like financial fraud, identity theft, scams, malware and phishing.

Reporting to the eSafety Commissioner

If you've seen or experienced:

  • cyber bullying, cyber abuse, non-consensual intimate images, or
  • material that promotes, incites, instructs or depicts abhorrent violent conduct,

please report it to the eSafety Commissioner.
