Rural Internet Service Provider Activ8me Announces Their Approval as an icode Compliant ISP, Coinciding With National Cybersecurity Awareness Week in Australia

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2011) - Activ8me.net.au is proud to announce it has been confirmed as being icode compliant by the Internet Industry Association, enabling them to be part of a wider effort to help protect their online clients. The icode is a new voluntary code of practice launched in December 2010 for Australian Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to help protect their customers and networks. This voluntary code of best practices, established in conjunction with the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy and the Federal Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, provides a systematic approach for ISPs to inform and protect their users.

To be considered icode compliant, an ISP has to have an approved system in place to notify comprised users as well as information resources for users on safety. Activ8me now shares an online safety guide with advice about how to protect your computer and to make your online time a more secure experience. Further information is completely provided on icode.net.au, which provides users similar and more extensive information on cybersafety, including avoiding infections and how to get professional help. The icode code of practice is available at the Internet Industry Association (iia.net.au) website, and provides information on how you can protect against all the threats present on the internet. The website also provides information and solutions for repairing computers that have already been infected in some way.

Activ8me is proud that their icode compliance announcement coincided with the National Cybersecurity Awareness Week. Held the week of May 30, 2011, it showcases the Australian government initiatives which are presented annually to help Australians everywhere to have a better understanding of the cybersecurity risks and the simple steps they can take to protect themselves and their children online. The Minister for Broadband, Stephen Conroy, together with the Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, jointly launched the Awareness Week.

As many Australians turn to the internet for their shopping, banking, education and communication needs it is more important than ever for these users to have a good understanding of what is involved in protecting the computers against any internet attacks in all its different forms, malware, spyware, etc. National Cybersecurity Awareness Week is held in partnership with industry, the community sector and all levels of government to promote awareness through online activities and events that are held across the country.
