Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022

See yourself in Cyber. #BeMoreCyberAware

Today representatives from across industry, government, regulatory bodies and society need to work together to help create a cyber secure culture fit for the future. Raising awareness of possible cyber threats/ scenarios and encouraging good cyber habits are one of the best ways to maintain a sustainable strengthened security posture.

To raise awareness and highlight the importance of cyber safety and digital security, October has been recognised as Cybersecurity Awareness Month (CAM). Now in its 19th year, cybersecurity awareness month continues to build momentum and impact, with the overarching theme for this year, ‘See yourself in Cyber’. The theme empowers individuals and organisations to take ownership in making smart decisions, at home and at the workplace, to stay safe online and create a secure cyberspace for all.

At Deloitte India Risk Advisory, we take this opportunity to share some of the best practices that can help reduce your cybersecurity risks, protect your data online, and build a diverse cybersecurity workforce to combat cyberattacks.
