National Awareness Program

As part of Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy, we are leading the national awareness program—in collaboration with government stakeholders, the private sector and research community—to help Australia better understand and stay resilient to cyber security threats.  

The program aims to:

  • affect behavioural change at the national level through a comprehensive approach to raising awareness of cybercrime, safety and security issues
  • educate Australians on the real world impacts of cyber risks and how these affect our current and future prosperity.

The research-based program leverages off existing awareness efforts of government and industry.

To complement capacity-building efforts and increase the collective impact of messages, we work closely with our international partners to coordinate awareness raising activities both in our region and globally. CERT Australia also manages Stay Smart Online, a key platform for raising the cyber security awareness of individuals and small businesses.
