Have a cyber safe holiday

Get ready for Unboxing Day!

From lights strung across rooftops to the six metre tall inflatable snowman in your neighbour’s front yard, it seems like everywhere you go, people are celebrating the season in their own way.

And this year, we’ve got one more reason to celebrate: Unboxing Day!

Unboxing Day is a new Get Cyber Safe tradition, held on December 27th, where Canadians open up all the cool new devices they got over the holiday season and make sure they’re secure from the start!

We also have an updated Get Cyber Safe Gift Guide, cyber safe carols, a cyber security meme game, instructions to build a gingerbread router and laptop, a festive yule firewall and many other resources you can use to make cyber security a part of your holiday traditions.

Help spread the holiday cheer

The holiday fun doesn't end here. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube for more content you can share with your family and friends to help them stay safe online.
