Tech Savvy Seniors – Managing Your Digital Assets – Sydney Course

A digital asset is any information about you, or belongs to you, that’s stored on a phone, computer or online. If you use a phone, tablet, laptop or computer, then chances are you are leaving your digital assets all over the internet and across your own devices.

Digital assets are important and potentially very valuable as they contain personal data about you. It includes your passwords, online accounts, memberships, digital files and photos stored on the cloud and more.

The course is for you, if:

  • You have a smart phone or tablet

*You have any digital passwords

  • You have an email account
  • You have a social media presence
  • You have photos on your phone or backed up elsewhere
  • You pay a monthly or annual fee for any technology or technology service

By the end of this course, you will know how to keep your digital assets secure and to minimise the chance they’ll be stolen or misused.
