K-12 Cyber Awareness Month

​​cam banner.png​During the past few years, we have seen the adoption of digital solutions and the internet at an unprecedented pace in every aspect of our lives – for work, education and staying connected with friends and loved ones. This quick and vast adoption of digital technology has increased cyber risks and online threats. Cybercriminals have taken advantage of this exponential increase in internet usage and continue to look for new ways to exploit users, irrespective of age.

We can all do our part to increase awareness related to cyber security, cyber safety, and online privacy. Learning to be cyber safe and secure is essential to making our online experience more secure, fun, and rewarding.

By adopting safe and secure practices you are not only protecting yourself, but also reducing the likelihood of cyber-attacks against all members of the school community. We can make our online and virtual lives safer for everyone by developing and maintaining personal safe online habits. ​​
