Cyber security preparedness

As you prepare and plan to respond to COVID-19, it is important to include cyber security considerations. Scammers are taking advantage of the coronavirus outbreak to exploit weaknesses in online security.

As more staff are working from home and the use of remote access technology increases, adversaries may attempt to take advantage. ASD's Australian Cyber Security Centre suggests agencies and individuals consider adopting a number of measures including applying security patches, implementing multi-factor authentication and understand how to detect socially-engineered messages.

If you think you have been scammed you can make a report on the scamwatch website.
