National Cyber Security Awareness Week Continues
ONLINE PRIVACY—AUSTRALIAJune 8, 2010
As National Cyber Security Awareness Week continues, Australia Privacy Commissioner Karen Curtis is hailing the government initiative as an opportunity for government organizations, industry and community groups to work together to promote smart online practices. "The number of ways that people can connect, shop and do business online is increasing all the time," Curtis said in a statement issued on Monday. "However, with this convenience also comes risk, and so people need to make sure that their online security is protected." The week focuses on simple ways to improve online security, including updating security software and being careful about sharing personal information across the Internet.
