Cyber Awareness

What is Cyber Awareness?

Cyber or Cybersecurity Awareness is the continuous process of teaching and training yourself, friends, coworkers, or employees about cyberspace and how to prevent threats and security incidents better.

Cyber Awareness aims to give a sense of proactive responsibility for the safety and security of personal or business online information. It's all about being aware of current security risks, cybersecurity best practices, the dangers of clicking on malicious links or downloading an infected attachment, engaging online, giving personal information, and so forth.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, reminding us of the importance of cybersecurity and online security. Many companies and organizations will initiate a cyber awareness challenge encouraging coworkers to improve their cybersecurity skills.

It has the participation of many tech industry partners who engage and educate customers, employees, and the general public, as well as universities, organizations, and other groups, to raise awareness of the value of robust cybersecurity.

Your data may not seem like much, but it's valuable. The amount of information about you that can be gathered by monitoring your online activity and raiding your accounts is enormous. Knowing how to protect yourself can save you from identify theft, phishing scams, and data breaches down the road.

Employees, too, must understand their role in enhancing a company's cybersecurity. Training and educating personnel is the best defense. Cyber Awareness teaches your staff about the methods employed by cybercriminals, how they might be targeted, how to identify possible dangers, and what they can do to avoid becoming a victim of these threats.

Once everyone knows the cybersecurity basics, it's time to test their effectiveness with a Cyber Awareness challenge. Involving employees and staff with a cyber security challenge is a great way to boost Cybersecurity Awareness, competence, and confidence.
