Stop, Think and Connect during Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and we need to do our part, as businesses, government entities and consumers to be diligent when we are online because of the cyber threats that we’re all exposed to on a daily basis. Part of NCSAM is the Stop.Think.Connect Campaign. These campaigns, like many others, are designed to bring public awareness of cyber threats and empower all us to be wise when we are online, be it on our computer or mobile devices. Cybersecurity starts with all of us and it’s a shared responsibility.

Here are 10 ways to be safer on the internet:

We are spending more time on the internet, be it at the workplace, school or our homes, and threats occur on a daily basis, so we should be diligent in practicing safe online habits. Hacks and breaches will continue to increase over time, so it’s the utmost importance to protect yourselves when using the internet. So, remember: Stop. Think. Connect.
