Cybercrime Awareness

Cybercrime is a growing problem in our society, and the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) is committed to educating the public on how to stay safe online. Here are some key tips for avoiding cybercrime:

  1. Protect your personal information: Don’t share sensitive information, such as your passwords, financial information, or personal details online. Keep your software and devices up to date with the latest security patches and antivirus software.
  2. Be cautious with emails and websites: Be wary of emails or websites that ask for personal information or offer too-good-to-be-true deals. Check the website’s security before entering any information and be suspicious of emails with odd subject lines, misspelled words, or unfamiliar senders.
  3. Use strong passwords: Create strong, unique passwords for all your accounts and change them regularly. Avoid using easily guessable information, such as your name or birthdate, in your passwords.
  4. Stay informed: Stay informed about the latest cyber threats and the best ways to protect yourself. Read articles and follow the RPNGC and other trusted sources on social media to stay informed.
  5. Report suspicious activity: If you suspect you have been the victim of cybercrime, report it immediately to the RPNGC. This includes phishing emails, online fraud, or any other type of cybercrime.

The RPNGC is dedicated to keeping the public informed and safe online. By following these tips, you can help protect yourself and your loved ones from cybercrime.
