Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM)

Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM)

October 1, 2020 – Defence Stories

October marks Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM), an important time of year for Defence Team members to foster understanding on how to protect themselves, their families, their workplace and their devices through cyber security.

This year, we recognize CSAM under the theme of “Cyber Resilience”.

We all play an important role in cyber security. Be Cyber Resilient: Stay Aware | Think Resilience | Take Action.


In addition to staying home and staying safe, be proactive by learning what you can do to stay safe online. It is important to stay informed about cyber security during times of heightened levels of technology use.
