Cyber security tips a must at Safety Expo

Cyber security tips a must at Safety Expo A cyber security expert will be providing tips at this year’s Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety Expo, on Saturday 13 October. No  

A cyber security expert will be providing tips at this year’s Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety Expo, on Saturday 13 October.

Mayor Khal Asfour said, according to the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), 47,000 cyber security incidents occurred in 2016-17, a 15 per cent increase from the previous year.

"The risks of having our personal information stolen, due to advances in technology, is now a common concern in society, so it’s important we try and help residents to understand the dos and don’ts," he said.

Western Sydney University’s cyber security team, along with cyber security expert, Daniel Weis, will perform live hacking demonstrations at the Expo, where they’ll show how easy it can be to have personal information stolen.

"The aim is to show people that it can happen anywhere, any time because hackers generally don’t discriminate when they want to steal something," Mr Weis said.

"I’ll be showing people how quick and easy it is to get into someone’s email in a matter of minutes and how their personal information can be compromised. What I know will be useful, is the tips and tricks I’ll go through on how to protect their identity and personal information."

"We know how important it is to be physically safe but we can sometimes forget about the threat of cyber attacks, and how damaging it can be to have our personal information stolen," Mayor Asfour said.

"This means we’re vulnerable to people hacking into social media accounts, emails and even having them worm their way into our computers, where they can steal photos and corrupt files – the worst part is, we often don’t even know when they do it."

In addition to expert tips and tricks on how to stay cyber-safe, there will be other safety demonstrations and exercises to check out on the day. They include:

  • CPR demonstrations;
  • Information stalls involving Police, Fire & Rescue NSW, NSW Ambulance, Surf Lifesaving, St John Ambulance and SES;
  • A visit from everyone’s favourite giraffe, Healthy Harold;
  • Face painting; and
  • Competitions and giveaways.

The Safety Expo will be held at Bankstown Central shopping centre (Centre Court, opposite Kmart). For more information, go to
