October was Cybersecurity awareness month in Canada. Cybersecurity is everyone within an organization’s responsibility, and a solid regime requires proper policies, procedures, technical safeguards, and training. Ask any cybersecurity expert, and they will tell you the single biggest risk to an organization’s systems and information is the people who already have access to it.
A few weeks ago, we presented to our staff on what they can do as individuals to keep our systems safe and avoid being phished or falling victim to ransomware. After delivering the presentation, we decided to modify it and generalize it for public consumption. Please keep in mind that the intent of the presentation is to provide some best practices for actions which are in the control of the individual user.
