QUIZ: How cyber safe are you?

Cyber Safety Quiz

Are you cyber sorry or cyber smart? Take our cyber safety quiz to find out

Cyber crime – hacks and online fraud – cost Australia about $1 billion last year. In May 2019, one company, property valuation group LandMark White, lost $7 million as the result of a data breach from a cyber attack.

But cyber safety is about more than money. Being the victim of an online scam can be devastating. In June 2019, a Melbourne woman was jailed for two years for pretending to be Australian soap star Lincoln Lewis, faking his identity online and then stalking people through social media. One of the victims of the scam (which is called catfishing) committed suicide.

Jump to our cyber safety quiz below to find out if you have the skills and knowledge to stay safe online, and if you have any concerns about cyber safety, check out trusted online sources such as the website Stay Smart Online, the Australian government organisation AustCyber and the Schools Cyber Security Challenges. You could also ask a teacher or trusted adult.

“Everything about the economy has a digital component. Whether we’re at home, work or school, or the local cafe, you need to be aware of the risks and benefits of being online,” says Michelle Price, CEO of AustCyber.”Making sure you’re ready to defend yourself online and being aware of careers in cybersecurity is critical right now.”
