Cybercrime and the global cyber threat make citizens vulnerable and cost trillions of dollars each year. Every connected device is a potential target. The cybersecurity problem is an education problem, from individual awareness to workforce capacity. Over 90% of attacks succeed not because of technology, but because of human error. And every private and public organization suffers from a cybersecurity talent shortage.
What is this Cyber Campaign about?
An audacious call to action — for every Internet user— to protect ourselves and our devices from the growing threats of online attacks. Timed to coincide with the global Safer Internet Day campaign in early February and National Cyber Awareness Month in October of every year, this cybersecurity campaign unites governments, corporations, nonprofits, universities, and schools globally, with a particular focus on the Quad countries (US, India, Japan, Australia).
