Melbourne – Australia has two new Stay Smart Online Agents, winners of a national ambassador search for the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy’s National Cyber Security Awareness Week initiative.
In a program created by Porter Novelli Melbourne, Father Bob Maguire in February kicked off a video recruitment drive that’s seen Simran Kaur and Stuart Jones chosen to be the faces and voices of cyber security throughout this month.
The pair teams with ABC TV Good Game hosts, Steven O’Donnell (Bajo) and Stephanie Bendixsen (Hex) in a series of consumer videos broadcast on the Stay Smart Online YouTube channel.
A third entrant, Melanie Bellotti, is an indigenous leader in her West Australian community of Carnarvon, and will help deliver cyber security and cyber safety messages through indigenous Australian networks.
National Cyber Security Awareness Week 2012 launches in Canberra’s National Convention Centre on Tuesday 12 June, in conjunction with the Youth Advisory Group Summit.
