Firewalls

When online your computer is potentially vulnerable to malicious Internet users. A Firewall is software and/or hardware used to protect one or more computers connected to the Internet from hackers and other unwanted intrusions.

Content filtering

Content filtering software helps you control the content accessed from your computer. It can be used to restrict and monitor Web sites, Email, Chat, IM and newsgroups that may be offensive and/or inappropriate for children. The Internet Industry Association has approved a list of Internet Content Filters which have been independently tested and meet the criteria outlined in the IIA content code.

Spyware and adware

Adware, also known as an Adbot, can profile your online surfing and spending habits and pop up those annoying ad windows. Spyware, also known as Malware is potentially far more dangerous than Adware because it can record your keystrokes, history, passwords and other confidential and private information.

Spam filters

`Spam` is unwanted and unsolicited junk email on the Internet. The Spam Act 2003 was established to regulate spam (defined as an unsolicited commercial electronic message`) sent to or by Australian end users. ACMA`s website has some great tips on how you can protect yourself and minimise your chances of receiving spam.
