NZITF Partners with Cyber Smart Week 2017

NZITF Partners with Cyber Smart Week 2017


The New Zealand Internet Task Force (NZITF) has signed up as an official partner of Cyber Smart Week - a nationwide cyber security awareness campaign being run during the last week of November.

Cyber Smart Week has been organised by New Zealand Government agencies CERT NZ and Connect Smart and will run from Monday 27 November to Friday 1 December 2017.

The theme of the week is ‘Just do one thing’. Cyber Smart Week revolves around four easy steps that anyone can follow that are quick, simple, and will improve online safety for individuals, business - their staff and customers:

• Use different passwords for different accounts

• Turn on two-factor authentication

• Make sure operating systems are up-to-date

• Check your privacy settings so you know who can see what

The Cyber Smart Week website can be found at cert.govt.nz/cybersmart. It has a range of useful cyber awareness advice, and campaign material for businesses and organisations wanting to get involved in Cyber Smart Week.

NZITF Chair Barry Brailey says NZITF is pleased to be supporting Cyber Smart Week.

“Cyber security is a shared responsibility, and awareness campaigns like Cyber Smart Week help increase people’s understanding of cyber threats and empower New Zealanders to be safer and more secure online.”
