IDCARE’s Cyber Resilience Outreach Clinic (CROC) team recently connected with locals on a visit to the area.
IDCARE is Australia and New Zealand’s national identity and cyber support service. They are a not-for-profit organisation that was formed to address a critical support gap for individuals confronting identity and cyber security concerns.
The CROC program consists of mobile pop-up clinics across regional Australia to provide personal direct priority access to IDCARE services.
In mid-February they popped into Tin Can Bay, and had this to say:
“Thanks to local councillor, Jess Milne, for making time to meet with us and the Solo Seniors group for allowing us to share important information about scams impacting your community during your morning tea!”
If you missed them, they have left some information at the Tin Can Bay library.
Their next stop was the Rainbow Beach markets, where they set up their truck and their popular “Scream at a Scammer” booth and then also spent a few days in the area.
“We loved meeting with locals, tourists and stallholders and hearing their stories!” the CROC team said.
“We chatted to many stallholders who benefitted from learning how to keep their small business safe – and we may have ended up buying a few too many souvenirs too.”
They were also pleased to be able to catch up with a couple of locals who were previous clients of their services.
