Stay Smart Online
6.09 million Australians were hit by cybercrime last year*. This week the University is partnering with Stay Smart Online to fight back against cybercrime and help you and your family stay safe online. Each year, Stay Smart Online Week brings a focus to our online security.
It’s all about smarter ways to avoid the pain, money and time it costs to recover from cybercrime. We can all take simple actions to keep ourselves, our families and businesses protected when connected.
Stop cybercriminals from getting the keys to your life – lock down your online security today.
To support you in the fight against cyber threats, the University is now offering Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to help you protect your Uni-ID and data. MFA is available on an opt-in basis and requires linking a smart device running the Okta Verify app with your Uni-ID. You can opt-in to MFA by completing the request form found here.
For simple ways to act smarter online and reverse the threat, visit www.newcastle.edu.au/cyber-safe. You can also access valuable tips and alerts at www.staysmartonline.gov.au/reversethethreat or on Facebook @StaySmartOnline
Together, we can reverse the threat of cybercrime.
