October is K-12 Cyber Awareness Month!

The K-12 Cyber Awareness Month (CAM) campaign has been developed to help Ontario school boards promote safer and more secure practices across their school communities when using digital technologies and the internet by promoting best practices in cyber safety, cyber security, and online privacy in K-12.

We’re encouraging everyone to be a Cyberhero! Defend against the bad guys – the phishers, scam artists, and all the supervillains who pose a threat to cyber security, safety and privacy.

6 Ways to Be a Cyberhero!

  1. Use the internet and digital technology for good, spreading positivity and respect
  2. Watch for and report questionable activities such as phishing and scams so others aren’t victims
  3. Stand up for yourself and others when hurtful or inappropriate online behaviour is noticed
  4. Keep personal or sensitive information to yourself, and be thoughtful about which information to share online and with whom
  5. Be a cyber ally, helping the board’s IT and security team(s) thwart cyberattacks, being vigilant and doing your part to keep board systems and information safe and secure
  6. Share and promote safe and secure cyber practices with friends and loved ones
