Dickson News – November 2019

A monthly update from your Federal Member for Dickson Peter Dutton

Day for Daniel 

Day for Daniel was held on Friday 25 October 2019, it is one of the largest child safety awareness days of its kind in the country. I was really pleased to attend the Walk for Daniel on the Sunshine Coast and support Denise and Bruce Morcombe at this event. They have done some amazing work in highlighting the importance of child protection since tragically losing their son Daniel in 2003. Child protection is everyone’s business and it was fantastic to see hundreds of local residents, school groups and community organisations support the event. I encourage you to visit danielmorcombefoundation.com.au to find out more about the work of the foundation and how you can get involved and help keep our kids safe.

Keeping Safe Online 

Recently the Home Affairs Department put out a call for views to help form Australia’s Cyber Security 2020. Members of the public are invited to participate in the process as we work to make sure cyber security is improved for all Australian citizens, community groups and businesses. If you would like more information please contact my office or visit homeaffairs.gov.au 

It is also a timely reminder to think about your security online. Hackers and scammers are getting more sophisticated and it is important to regularly update your passwords and take other precautions to ensure your safety online. 

More information and tips on how you can ensure your safety online can be found at staysmartonline.gov.au
