Cyber Security – Successful online service delivery

Row of people holding mobile phones

Australians are early adopters of mobile smart devices. Many of us enjoy being online,  consuming media and keeping in contact with friends.  Invariably, our smartphone is the first thing we pick up in the morning and the last thing we check at night.  Needless to say, we also want to consume services, including those from the government, via our devices.

On the other side of the coin, it is efficient and logical for government to provide their services via mobile smart devices, particularly as we spend more time working from home in this current environment.

With these rewards, come risks. Those working at all levels of government, in all areas of policy development and service delivery need to have a solid understanding of the full gamut of these cyber risks.

Employees need to learn the crucial and relevant cyber security skills needed to protect and defend government IT assets and the information which resides on them. Cyber security training, which incorporates integrated hands-on lab exercises provides the tools and techniques to provide online service delivery to consumers in a safe, secure and trustworthy manner.
