Meet the Digital Clans of New Zealand


The Digital Cowboys

You use the internet for lots of different activities, particularly entertainment and social media.  Your smartphone or tablet is your constant companion! Trouble is, you can be a bit of a risk-taker. Clicking links from senders you don’t recognise or ignoring warnings from your anti-virus software can open you up to security breaches. This can affect your online accounts, and set your contacts up to receive spam or viruses too. 

The Cautious Connectors


You don’t spend a whole lot of time online; mainly it’s just for getting the basics done. You know it’s important to protect yourself online, but you might not be quite sure about the best ways to do it. The good news is that improving your digital security is pretty easy – it’s not too complicated or expensive to take the basic steps to protect yourself online and still enjoy the great benefits the internet has to offer.

The Digital Converts

You mainly use the internet for entertainment and keeping in touch with friends and family, as well as banking and shopping online, but you might not yet be fully up to speed with how to keep yourself fully protected online. The internet is a great tool, but it also brings with it some risks.

The Constant Connectors

You’re not super techy, but you love keeping up with what’s happening with friends and family on social media. Your smartphone is always at your fingertips and you often download or stream your favourite movies or TV shows. Generally, you judge a site’s security based on whether or not it looks dodgy, which can be risky…

The Digital Pace-setters

You know your way around the internet and you’re pretty good at protecting yourself online across all of your devices. Friends and family may also look to you and ask for your help in resolving technology-related issues they’re experiencing. Be careful not to get too complacent, though – cyber security threats are changing all the time and there’s probably more you could be doing to protect yourself, your friends and your family.
