Cyber Awareness


K-12 Cyber Awareness Month 2021 


The GECDSB in partnership with ECNO (Educational Computing Network of Ontario) is pleased to invite staff, students, and parents to participate in October’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month. 
The past 18+ months have shifted the way we rely on and interact with technology. In all areas of our lives, we have seen an unprecedented increase in the use of technology and the internet for staying connected, for recreation, for online learning, and more. Now more than ever, it is imperative that we learn to protect ourselves online. 
Please follow this page for weekly themes along with advice and tips and we highly encourage you to check out the additional resources page as well. 


This year’s campaign theme is:

“Cyber awareness as self-care!” 
Adopting safe, secure and healthy habits online is caring for your online presence and digital footprint, while helping

to ensure you and your family are protected online. 


Week 1 Theme: Show your devices and accounts some love. 

Week 2 Theme: Pay attention to your home network and Wi-Fi connections. 

Week 3 Theme: Care for your personal information – it is valuable!
