Cybersecurity is a top priority in the workplace from protecting data and systems to regular training updates and it should also be a priority at home. Cyber fitness should be made a part of daily routines and families could safe guard their personal well-being and online information.
The lead cyber security division policy branch lead, Servio Medina said, “We do want to empower people to not unwittingly compromise their own information and their own well-being. Being cyber fit incudes recognizing risky behaviour, such as clicking a link in a suspicious email. An increase in awareness and accountability is needed to reduce cyber risks. He draws a parallel with the practices and choices we make every day for overall fitness. You should probably get a medical expert’s assessment if you suspect having something worse than a cold, yet we really don’t have the same mindfulness when it comes to cyber practices and choices.”
