IDCARE Supporting the ACSC’s Small Business Survey
IDCARE encourages small businesses to participate in theAustralian Cyber Security (ACSC) Small Business Survey.
Their team in Canberra will benefit from hearing about cyber security from a small business perspective and you may learn a thing or two from the practical tips on offer.
IDCARE has been a target of cyber security threats. We see a lot of interest in our website that comes from places we don’t expect. We’ve had our email address spoofed (someone impersonated us), and like many businesses and government agencies, our staff receive phishing attempts every day. There is no shame in admitting that. It’s shameful to hide these things and not learn from the experience. That’s why the key to our defence is our people, our actions and our culture.
We know cyber security is a foundational business need. It’s not a nice to have. We all share a responsibility to make online Australia a safe place. Share your views and experiences like we have.
IDCARE is here to provide you with specialist support and guidance when faced with a cyber and identity related issue. Contact one of our Identity & Cyber Security Case Managers to learn more about our Support Services and how we can help you.
IDCARE as a registered charity does not ask individuals to donate or pay for our front line services. We are not a charity that can receive tax deductible donations. We rely on organisations that care enough about you to care about us to keep our charitable service going. Proudly these organisations are displayed above and on our Subscriber Organisations page. If you are asked for payment from someone claiming to be from IDCARE, please report this to us using our Report Phishing email.
IDCARE has access to the Department of Social Services’ Free Interpreting Service, delivered by the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National). Access to the Free Interpreting Service is provided to assist you to communicate with non-English speaking people who hold a Medicare card. Please note that the service does not extend to New Zealand citizens or residents who do not hold an Australian Medicare card, or to tourists, overseas students or people on temporary work visas.
New Zealand Relay provides services to help Deaf, hearing impaired, speech impaired, Deafblind and standard phone users communicate with their peers. A TTY user connects to New Zealand Relay via a toll-free number and types their conversation to a Relay Assistant (RA) who then reads out the typed message to a standard phone user (hearing person).
The RA relays the hearing person's spoken words by typing them back to the Textphone (TTY) User.
The National Relay Service (NRS) is an Australian government initiative that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing and/or have a speech impairment to make and receive phone calls.
The NRS is available 24 hours a day, every day and relays more than a million calls each year throughout Australia.
