Buloke's Cyber Safety Week 2023

This helps to build a culture of cyber safety and security, which is critical in today's interconnected world.

Overall, participating in Cyber Safety Week is an important step towards a safer and more secure digital world for everyone.

What is Safer Internet Day? 

Safer Internet Day is a global event that brings together communities, families schools and organisations from more than 200 countries to help create safer online spaces.

This worldwide initiative is celebrating 20 years in 2023, making it a great time to reflect as well as look forward. 

Technology has evolved dramatically in the past two decades and the benefits have been huge. These developments have also exposed us to many risks with real-world impacts, making online safety awareness even more important.  
That's why we are calling on Australians to Connect. Reflect. Protect. 
Connect safely and with purpose – by keeping apps and devices secure and using social media in positive ways. 

Reflect before we act – by taking a moment to consider how what we do and say online may affect others. 

Protect ourselves and others by taking action – by telling family, friends or colleagues about eSafety and how we can help.  
By doing these simple things, we can work towards making every day a Safer Internet Day.
