October is Cyber Security Awareness Month. It was created to educate internet users about online security and the simple steps they can take to protect themselves. The campaign’s goal is to bring together all levels of government, the public and private sectors, and the international community, to help internet users be safer online.

Cyber Security Awareness Month aims to drastically reduce the number of Canadians falling victim to cybercrime by creating awareness, sharing prevention tips and creating informed internet users.

Most Canadian internet users feel vulnerable to online threats, yet many people take risks online, such as opening email from an unknown source or not protecting personal information stored on a computer. Take the time, this October, during Cyber Security Awareness Month, to review your online safety practices and follow #CSAM.

Today, at 1 p.m., we will be joined by special guests the Canadian Bankers Association, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association, to answer questions regarding Cyber Crime. Members of the public can follow the Canadian Bankers Association, Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association using the hashtags @CdnBankers, @Canantifraud and @CHLIA on Twitter.

To follow #fraudchat, members of the public simply need to log on to Twitter from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST and follow the #Fraudchat hashtag. An application such as “Tweetdeck,” which allows users to separately view tweets containing this hashtag, is also helpful in following the chat.
