About Get Cyber Safe

Get Cyber Safe is a national public awareness campaign created to educate Canadians about Internet security and the simple steps they can take to protect themselves online. The campaign's goal is to bring together all levels of government, the public and private sectors, and the international community, to help Canadians be safer online.

The campaign is an important component of the National Cyber Security Strategy, which is dedicated to securing government systems, partnering to secure vital cyber systems outside the federal government, and helping Canadians to be secure online.

The campaign is being led by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security on behalf of the Government of Canada.

About Cyber Security Awareness Month

To help us all become more aware of what we can do to be safe online, October has been designated as a time of year to step up our efforts and increase our knowledge of online safety.

Cyber Security Awareness Month is a joint effort by government and business leaders from across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Working together, with all our citizens, we can continue to put into effect better practices and safeguards to combat cyber crime.
