How Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) can celebrate Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM)

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM). As a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), you play an important role in promoting cyber security within your organization. If you’re looking to celebrate CSAM in your organization, let Get Cyber Safe help! 

What’s Get Cyber Safe? 

Get Cyber Safe is a national public awareness campaign offeredby the Government of Canada. Get Cyber Safe informs Canadians and Canadian businesses about cyber security and the simple steps they can take to stay safe online. The campaign is led by the Communications Security Establishment, with advice from its Canadian Centre for Cyber Security 

What’s CSAM? 

CSAM is an internationally recognized campaign held every October to inform the public of the importance of cyber security. Get Cyber Safe is the Canadian lead for CSAM. 

For #CSAM2021, Get Cyber Safe is highlighting how Life Happens Online by showcasing the countless ways the internet keeps us connected. From staying in touch with family and friends to working and learning online, the internet has been central to the way our lives have changed. 

Why become a partner? 

Partners are key to the success of CSAM and for increased cyber security across the country. The more Canadians learn about staying safe online, the more resilient we’ll all be against cyber threats. The best way to raise awareness about cyber security is to have more organizations involved.— and that includes partners like you! Being a CSAM partner helps show your audience that you care about their cyber security. 

How can you get involved? 

Being a CSAM partner is simple and impactful. We have prepared some helpful resources to get you started right away — here’s what you can do: 

  • Review the CSAM 2021 partner toolkit and determine how you can best incorporate CSAM messaging into your October 2021 communications efforts.

  • Plan social media content for your organization. Use our pre-crafted messages as a start, and remember to use #GetCyberSafe, #CSAM2021, #Cyber and #Cybersecurity.
