Loss Prevention Tip #54 Get Cyber Safe

Cyber Security Awareness Month is an internationally recognized campaign held each October to help the public learn more about the importance of cyber security. This campaign helps Canadians stay secure online by teaching them simple steps to protect themselves and their devices. This year, the focus is on ruining cyber criminals’ days by teaching Canadians how to fight back against phishing scams.

Phishing is a cyber criminal’s attempt to get sensitive information by pretending to be a legitimate sender like a bank or a government organization. Phishing is the fourth most common scam in Canada. Each week will highlight different aspects of phishing scams to help Canadians prepare themselves against, or recover from, all types of phishing.
