October is Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM) in Canada

Cyber Security Awareness Month is an internationally recognized campaign held each October to help the public learn more about the importance of cyber security. This campaign helps Canadians stay secure online by teaching them simple steps to protect themselves and their devices.  In 2021, Cyber Security Awareness Month in Canada takes place October 1 to October 31 and the theme is “Life Happens Online”.

This year, life happens online

The internet really came through this year. With the help of our devices, the internet let us spend time with our friends and families, share special moments and make our lives feel as normal as possible — even when they weren’t. By protecting our devices, accounts and connections, we can make sure we never miss a moment of our online lives.

After over a year of being so connected to the internet, it’s still important to make sure we’re doing it securely. Here’s how we’re helping Canadians stay online safely this Cyber Security Awareness Month.
