Greetings Cyberwolves

October was National Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM). This year the focus was on four key topics. We created polls and shared valuable resources. The four key topics were as follows:

1. Enabling multi-factor authentication

2. Using strong passwords and a password manager

3. Updating software

4. Recognising and reporting phishing

Throughout the month, Wolfpack engaged with clients and communities across the country to promote cyber wellness. We wanted to ensure that our rainbow nation has access to various resources and tools that make the internet safer and equip individuals to make smarter decisions at work, home, or school.

Cybersecurity may seem complicated, but it is all about people. If you use the internet, you have a BIG role and responsibility. That is why we focused on the “people” aspect of cybersecurity this October. We want to encourage everyone to:

  • Reinforce that we can all make a difference as it takes a collective effort to understand, manage, and reduce risks in the digital and physical world.
  • Cybersecurity starts with each of us. We encourage families and individuals to take action and stay safe online by visiting our social media pages and using our FREE tools and resources to help promote cybersecurity. 
  • We encourage you to upskill and join the cyber workforce and community to address the cyber skills shortage in our country.
  • Collaboration between industry partners and organisations to share real-time information, build cyber resilience, and help protect our country’s critical infrastructure and the systems we use and rely on daily. 

Wolfpack is committed to improving online safety and cyber collaboration daily. Some celebrate Halloween; we celebrate cybersecurity!
