At Internode, we believe in providing the best possible Internet experience to our customers, without fear of personal or property damage.
Unfortunately, there are those in society who prey upon the unsuspecting and unwary - selling false products and convincing users to part with personal or financial information - leaving the victim feeling violated and vulnerable.
Like crossing a busy road, the Internet is not a risk-free experience. We want to help make it as painless and safe as possible through customer education. We care about our customer’s Internet experience, and by providing the education and tools about security risks and issues, we believe you will be better equipped to manage the risks associated with Internet usage.
These pages have been assembled from a range of references, experiences and information to assist you in understanding and avoiding the most common security issues affecting the Internet today.
While we have tried to bring together as much relevant information as possible, this guide is in no way intended to be 'the' comprehensive guide to mastery of computer security. Our aim is to put you on the path to becoming more aware of Internet security issues, and hence keep you - and your family - safe and secure.
As a first step in our increased focus on customer security, we are upgrading the Internet port filter (which was first released in 2006) to include additional protection for customers.
