Does your microwave already speak TCP? Every year, we connect a new type of gadget to the internet. What we forget is that convenience comes at a price. Every device increases the risk of data surveillance and hacking against us. The goal of the Cyber Month campaign is to remind internet users about digital threats and teach them how to stay safe.
Cyber Month is Nord Security’s recognition of cybersecurity in our everyday life. This year, Cyber Month will run from October 19 to December 1. If you’re new to NordLocker and would like to try one of the premium plans, you can get the 500GB plan for $3.19 or 2TB plan for $7.99 a month. Save up to 53% off your NordLocker subscription.
Don’t forget that all plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee. So you can try NordLocker risk free.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month was first celebrated in 2004, three years before the release of the first iPhone. Needless to say, the internet and its potential threats were far from what they are today. But even 18 years ago, it was clear that cybersecurity was going to be a critical issue, worthy of having an entire month dedicated to it.
This year, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) theme for Cybersecurity Awareness Month is “See Yourself in Cyber.” It aims to highlight that everyone has a part to play in digital security. By learning about cyber threats and educating others, you can help protect yourself, your family, and your place of work.
When the FBI warns you about something, you should listen. And the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) warns us about cyber threats every year before the holidays. Because for you these are holidays, but it’s peak working hours for hackers, scammers, and thieves. When we’re stressed out, tired, inattentive, and in a rush, we can easily become targets of cybercrime. To help you prevent that, below we’re sharing some holiday cybersecurity tips.
At NordLocker, we share cybersecurity news all year long. But the holiday season is not like the rest of the year. Online shopping spikes during the last two months of the year globally and it’s always followed by a spike in cybercrime. Here’s what you should keep in mind while browsing online:
While undoubtedly joyful, the holiday season can also be the reason behind an unhealthy amount of stress and distractions. Whether you’re on a skiing trip, shopping for gifts, or simply working remember these rules to stay safe online.
