Optimising partners up with Stay Smart Online

Posted on January 07, 2016

At Optimising, we are regularly advising our clients and the broader community about the importance of online security. Therefore we are thrilled to announce our involvement with the Australian Government's online safety and security website, Stay Smart Online!

Stay Smart Online

Stay Smart Online has been designed to help everyone understand the risks and simple steps we can take to protect our personal and financial information online. It provides in depth and useful online safety information, guides and resources about Mobile Devices, Computers and Social Media to a variety of internet users such as Youths, Traders and Businesses.

A popular SSO resource is the Alert Service which is free to Australian users to explain recent online threats and how they can be managed. Home and small business users are provided with easy to understand online safety and security information and solutions to help protect their online safety and privacy. The resource also informs users about the latest threats and vulnerabilities within an Australian context and how to address any risks to their devices or computer networks.

With the internet and social media rapidly expanding and our privacy decreasing more and more everyday it is so vital that internet users keep themselves safe online. Many of the things we do online - banking, shopping or even chatting with family and friends involves us giving our personal and financial information, ensuring you know how to protect yourself will save a lot of problems in the future.

Optimising chose to get involved with this fantastic resource as we are committed to our client’s online safety. Some of the ways we have done this is through:

  • Building a secure platform for sending credit card information directly into our system so internal staff do not need to manually do this.

  • Building a secure message (single use) website for our clients to utilise: https://encry.pt.

  • Having started using a system to store client credentials called 'Meldium' to ensure client data remains safe and only with who needs access.

  • Recently publishing our own study on 'Online Security' where we surveyed over 1,000 people on their online security behaviours!

To get involved, you can subscribe to the Stay Smart Online alert service.
