Take control of your digital assets
October is Cyber Security Month – the annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among people and organisations, and to providing up-to-date online security information through awareness raising and sharing of good practices. Each year, for the entire month of October, hundreds of activities take place across the world, including conferences, workshops, training, webinars, presentations and more, to promote digital security and cyber hygiene.
The two themes of the campaign are:
- First aid, guidelines on what to do if you fall victim of a cyberattack
- Be cyber-secure at work/home
The coronavirus pandemic is testing online security resilience worldwide, while at the same time is pushing more and more people to conduct their daily lives and work online at home. Our lives have shifted into the digital dimension so educating the online user has become more important than ever before.
The main objectives of the October 2021 campaign are to ensure that end-users and organisations are well informed on the potential cybersecurity risks and that they stay resilient. The general intention is to help people and business develop a basic understanding of the different types of online security and privacy issues.
Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility
Its key priorities have been to bring together parties from across the world to unite against cyberthreats. Each year, the campaign not only promotes the safer use of the Internet for citizens, but the knowledge and tools to do so.
