ASIO - Think Before You Link (new awareness campaign)


ASIO has just released a new awareness campaign called Think Before You Link (TBYL) 


The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of this threat, as well as to provide advice on how to reduce risk and respond to suspicious approaches.

The campaign is primarily directed at Australians who have access to sensitive information, particularly those working in government, defence industry or academia.

But the campaign has a broader public safety message to alert all Australians to the threat.  It provides practical tips on how Australians can protect themselves and report suspicious online approaches.


The ASIO website ( hosts a Think Before You Link page with the following resources:

  • the Director-General’s introductory video clip;
  • an animation;
  • four printable booklets/flyers—Guide for organisations (booklet), Online networking guide (booklet), Case study (booklet), Online networking guide (flyer);
  • two printable briefing packs—Senior managers and security manager/adviser briefing pack, Staff briefing pack;
  • eight posters; and
  • a wallet card.

Please visit our website (here) to explore these resources, which have been developed for both individuals and organisations to use, and feel free to share our message with colleagues, friends and family.”
