Seniors Online Security
The Seniors Online Security Project is a collaborative project with the Carindale PCYC, Queensland Police Service, the Office of the Information Commissioner and the Australian Government. This project was funded by the Australian Federal Government and was officially launched on Monday 20 August 2012 as part of Seniors Week.
The Seniors Online Security Project has developed a training package targeted at improving the ability of seniors to use their computers in a confident and safe manner. The overall aim of the training is to educate seniors about protecting themselves while using the internet and therefore reducing the likelihood that they become victims of fraud.
The training package comprises five modules: computer security, identity crime, social networking, fraudulent emails and internet banking. For each module, a training booklet is available for individual learning as well as a PowerPoint presentation to facilitate group learning. Each of these resources is available for download below.
