Cyber security isn't always as exciting as watching Angelina Jolie "hack" into a mainframe, a la the 1995 hit movie Hackers. Getting the public interested and aware of online best practice is a difficult task, but one that NetSafe has tackled well with a series of videos tying in with Cyber Security Awareness Week.
The online safety organisation has released four (soon to be five) videos taking a lighthearted look at the topic. The videos are all themed to a classic Hollywood genre and so far cover password strength, regular software updates, wireless security and backups.
The concepts for the videos are from NetSafe, with the production work done by Tony Burrows of Motion Pacific.
