ACORN Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network What is the ACORN? Cybercrime is an issue which affects many Australians. As Australia’s reliance on technology grows, the cost and incidence of cybercrime is expected to increase. The Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN) is a national policing initiative of the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments. It is a national online system that allows the public to securely report instances of cybercrime. It will also provide advice to help people recognise and avoid common types of cybercrime. What does the ACORN do? The ACORN provides information on how to recognise and avoid common forms of cybercrime (such as hacking, online scams, online fraud, identity theft and attacks on computer systems) as well as advice for those who have fallen victim. It also makes reporting cybercrime easier and more convenient for all Australians. The ACORN is a key initiative under the National Plan to Combat Cybercrime, which sets out how Australian agencies are working together to make Australia a harder target for cybercriminals. The ACORN has been designed to make it easier to report cybercrime and help develop a better understanding of the cybercrime affecting Australians. By understanding the enablers of cybercrime, we can make it harder and less rewarding to commit cybercrime.” Learn more Stay Smart Online Government run website Stay Smart Online provides tips for families and small business with topics like securing your computer, making smart transactions online and keeping kids safe online.
