Free Security For Aussie Schools

With E-Security Awareness Week just around the corner, the federal govt rolls out the PR

Australia’s Federal government has launched new interactive learning modules, available free for all Australian schools, which are targetted at Year 3 and Year 9 students and highlight the simple steps they can take to be smart online.

Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, launched the Budd:e E-security Education Modules in Melbourne as part of National E-security Awareness Week.

“No-one wants to lose their personal details to criminals or fall victim to an online scam and that’s why it’s important that people understand the simple steps they can take to stay smart online and protect their personal information,” Conroy said. “Being more secure online can be as simple as getting a better, stronger password and updating it twice a year. Students should understand that their personal information is valuable and be careful about what they give away online.”

The Budd:e E-security Education Modules feature e-security tips, games and video content. They have been developed specifically to provide an enjoyable and informative experience for students.
