The latest Annual Cyber Threat Report from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) indicates that a cybercrime is reported on average once every 7 minutes – a 13% increase from the previous financial year.
National Seniors’ research shows that older people who were less familiar with digital technology were most likely to report being scammed. It's the reason these videos have been produced, in collaboration with the Australian Federal Police.
National Seniors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Chris Grice said:
“With the removal of cheques and the transition towards a cashless society, seniors have no choice but to transact online exposing them to potential cybercrimes. In collaboration with the AFP, National Seniors aims to empower seniors with the knowledge, tools, and confidence they need to stay safe in the digital world.”
