CyberGuru is proud to partner with Scams Awareness Week 2020, an initiative of the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission’s Scamwatch. Scamwatch has seen a 55% increase in reports involving loss of personal information this year compared with the same period in 2019, totalling more than 24,000 reports and over $22 million in losses.
This year’s theme is “Be yourself: don’t let a scammer be you”. As part of Scams Awareness Week, Scamwatch has launched a podcast, This is Not Your Life, with a new episode released each day this week talking about how to protect your identity.
