October is Cyber Security Awareness Month
We had many people participate in our 2020 Cyber Security Awareness Month daily challenges, one lucky participant from the Ministry of Health won the Grand Prize!
Check back next October 2021 for additional Cyber Security Awareness Month themes and activities.
Review 2020 CSAM themes and activities below:
Devices have become an integral part of our lives. In fact, sometimes it’s hard to remember all of the connected devices we use on a daily basis. The first few days of CSAM will focus on taking stock of all of the devices in your life and bidding farewell to those devices that have served you well, but that you might not use anymore.
Check back at the end of the week for the answers.
Your beloved phone. It is one of the last things you see before you fall sleep and one of the first when you wake up. During the COVID-19 pandemic, you have probably spent even more time with your phone than you usually do. Whether you want to connect with your loved ones, knock some things off your work ‘to-do’ list, or just kill time, your phone is there when you need it (except when it runs out of battery, but that’s on you). It’s time to repay your phone for all it has done for you by making sure it’s properly secured.
Phones may be like tiny computers in our pockets, but there are some things they still don’t do as well as a good old-fashioned laptop or desktop. Like video games, responding to emails, and work (especially if you’ve been working from home). Let’s reward these important devices with some well-deserved caring.
Network devices may not be as flashy as phones or computers. Nobody is waiting in line for the latest router — but they serve an important function— They connect you to everything. Let’s give these unsung heroes their due by making sure they’re secure against cyber threats.
If computers are your childhood BFF, then the smart devices around your house are that quirky but lovable friend you make as an adult. Sure, they’re a little weird and unfamiliar, but once you figure out how to work together, you won’t know how you ever lived without them.
