The K-12 Cyber Awareness Month (CAM) campaign has been developed to promote safer and more secure practices across our school communities when using digital technologies and the internet by promoting best practices in cyber safety, cyber security, and online privacy in K-12.

The campaign is an adaptation of the internationally recognized October Cyber Security Awareness Month which is often mentioned in the media.

We’re encouraging participants to be a Cyberhero! Fight off the bad guys – the phishers, scam artists, and all the supervillains who pose a threat to cyber security, safety and privacy.

Each week in October, the campaign will focus on a different theme related to cyber awareness.

6 Ways to Be a Cyberhero!
