Cyber Awareness Calendar

We’re encouraging cyber awareness throughout the year! Use our interactive calendar, monthly themes and infosheets to incorporate cyber safety into your classroom, office, or even your home.

We can all do our part to increase awareness related to cyber security, cyber safety, and online privacy, and in turn, remediate cyber actions that can cause harm. Learning to be cyber safe and secure is essential to making our online experience more secure, fun, and rewarding. 

By adopting safe and secure practices you are not only protecting yourself, but also reducing the likelihood of cyber-attacks against all members of the school community. Collectively, we can make our online and virtual lives safer for everyone by developing and maintaining personal safe online habits.
