The rapid rise of technology has changed the way we go about our everyday lives.
From ‘tap and go’ to internet banking – the world is constantly changing.
And how we keep ourselves cyber safe is changing too.
As your federal member, I have received a large number of calls and emails about your concerns with cyber security.
Whether its scam calls, texts, or general financial security matters – modern technology has created new ways for the average Australian to fall victim to cybercrime.
That’s why it is so important to stay informed on how you can be safe online.
No matter what banking institution you use, there are measures in place to protect your financial security.
If you are concerned that you have been contacted by a scammer, make sure you report this with your relevant communications or financial institution, or contact the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
If you would like further information on how to keep yourself safe when using technology, please visit the websites which have been linked below.
Remember – Stop. Check. Reject.
And if in doubt, don’t.
That’s just as I see it.
