You know what would go great with your pumpkin spiced treats this October? Cyber security! Okay, now that I have your attention, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and it’s a great time to be #CyberAware. There are plenty of ways to participate.
- Are you tech savvy, but maybe your friends or family members aren’t? Check out our easy-to-share videos — and spread some good karma on social media with #CyberAware. Here’s a good one to share:
- Are you a parent or teacher? Check out our Net Cetera resources for tips on starting the conversation with kids about online safety.
- Does your company collect and use personal information? Learn how to protect it with our Start with Security resources for businesses.
- Have you been a victim of identity theft? Visit identitytheft.gov for step-by-step advice that can help you limit the damage, report identity theft, and fix your credit.
We encourage you to order any of our free materials for your National Cyber Security Awareness Month events, and to share with your family, friends, co-workers, and community. Place your free order at ftc.gov/bulkorder.
However you choose to participate this October, we hope you’ll help us raise awareness on how to be safe, secure, and responsible online.
