The New Zealand government is working to increase public awareness of the rising threat of cybercrime, educating residents how to take necessary steps to protect themselves and digital information from online attackers. IT professionals in New Zealand and worldwide with security computing training are in high demand, as the growing number of cyber threats is prompting more investment in security efforts.New Zealand communications minister Amy Adams launched Cyber Security Awareness Week to increase public education on cyber threats and the risks associated with placing personal information online. The weeklong campaign offers ways for consumers to learn how to protect their personal, financial and business information online, without disrupting workflows or stifling innovation. The week of awareness overlaps Australia's Cyber Security Awareness Week, as the entire region works to remain safe online."More than 2,000 New Zealanders are affected by cyber crime every day in the form of computer viruses and malware, credit card fraud, online scams, phishing and identity theft," Adams said. "It's important we make sure New Zealanders are aware of what the dangers are and that they take the right precautions.'"According to Adams, consumers should invest in anti-virus software protection, and update the technology as need be. Consumers should also use proper password protection at home and at work, back up important information and only use secure wireless connections.
