Increasing your cyber awareness and skills
What is Cyber Safety?
Being cyber safe helps you and your kids feel confident online. It means being aware of, and reporting, anything on the internet that feels abusive or threatening, like cyber bullying, cyber abuse, image-based abuse, or illegal or restricted online content. That way, you can keep yourself and others safe. Luckily, you're not on your own in this.
The eSafety Commissioner is Australia's independent regulator for online safety. They safeguard Australians from online harm and promote safer, more positive experiences. If you've seen or experienced a cyber safety concern, they are there to help.
At Telstra, we're committed to helping their cause by giving our customers the tools to set up family filters, block inappropriate content and stay on top of active scams.
What is Cyber Security?
It starts with good cyber hygiene: two-step verification, good password protection and regularly updating your devices. If you need a more comprehensive suit of tools, you can get additional security software to suit your needs.
Security software can help block known malicious websites and reduce 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.
