Great resources to improve cyber security

October is cyber security month, and Nipissing is working to keep you cyber safe by offering some resources created by the Government of Canada.

We’ve got two entries to get you started this week:

Get Cyber Safe and STOP. THINK. CONNECT: Simple Steps to Online Safety

Easy-to-follow, actionable advice everyone can use.

Canadians are among the highest users of internet-enabled computer technology. A priority of Public Safety Canada is to make the public aware of issues of security and safety and help Canadians stay safe from cyber threats. To better protect Canadians, their families and community, home networks and mobile devices must be secure, and vulnerable audiences need to be taught how to use the internet safely, securely and responsibly. Week 1 will address the top cyber concerns and provide steps on how to avoid them along with valuable information about what to do if you experience a cyber incident.

Cyber security in the Workplace is Everyone's Business

Whatever your place of business, creating a culture of cyber security from the breakroom to the boardroom is essential and is a shared responsibility among all employees.

Every workplace needs a plan for employee education, training and awareness that emphasizes risk management, resistance and resilience. Week 2 will showcase how businesses, industries and organizations of all types can protect themselves, their employees and their customers against the most common cyber threats. Get Cyber Safe will provide tips for your organization and employees that will keep people and information safe and secure on a daily basis.

NU News will offer more resources in the coming weeks.
