It’s October, and that means Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

According to the Canadian federal government’s official CSAM page, the theme for this October’s awareness campaign is “Life happens online,” in recognition of the huge volume of meetings and interactions that moved from in-person to online during the last year and a half of the pandemic.

As the page states, “The internet really came through this year. With the help of our devices, the internet let us spend time with our friends and families, share special moments and make our lives feel as normal as possible — even when they weren’t. By protecting our devices, accounts and connections, we can make sure we never miss a moment of our online lives.”

The website also includes week-by-week tips to help Canadians make the most of the internet safely.
