October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, a time to help Canadians protect themselves and their families against a wide range of online threats.

Led by Public Safety Canada, the Get Cyber Safe campaign is designed to help better understand the cyber threats they face online and the simple steps they can take to minimize those risks.

We all have a key role to play in keeping our home computers and personal devices secure online. We also play a big part in keeping our businesses safe from cyber threats.

This month we’ll be featuring a number of tips to help you stay safe online, such as:

  • How to spot suspicious emails
  • Why you need secure passwords
  • How to protect your mobile device
  • How to recognize a risky website

Just a few simple precautions like these can keep us from becoming a cyber criminal’s next victim.
