How to stay safe online

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a national campaign to generate awareness on how to protect yourself from online scams. Cyber criminals try to trick users into giving up personal information, tamper with their devices, and can even steal their identities. When cyber attackers are successful, victims can find themselves in a situation where they lose money, are locked out of accounts, or worse.

This October, learn how to stay safe online and protect yourself from possible cyber attacks with these resources from ABC Life Literacy Canada.

These resources are made available from ABC Connect for Learning and ABC Money Matters – two literacy programs for adult learners. Learn more about these and other programs at
