To avoid becoming a victim of cybercrime, we all need to accept responsibility for our own security and safety online. This means using safe online practices and being aware of the ways that criminals try to obtain personal information online.

There are some practical things you can do to help protect against and prevent cybercrime, including:
  • being on the lookout for email scams,
    securing your computer from cybercrime attacks,
    staying safe on social media,
    exercising caution when shopping online,
    keeping your personal information protected, and
    adopting strategies to prevent exposure to inappropriate online content.
    You should also visit Stay Smart Online.
If you have been a victim of cybercrime, please view the ACORN support page for information about services available to help you.
