Cyber Security Awareness Month


Cyber Security Awareness Month is an internationally recognized campaign held each October to inform everyone about the importance of cyber security. Our campaign is focused on helping everyone at Sask Polytech to be more technology and information secure, by being informed and understanding some simple steps to take to protect ourselves, our devices and our workplace. We will have a theme each week focusing on a different area.

Please join us in promoting a culture #cybersecurity and users who are #cyberaware.


Keep a clean machine:

Having the latest security software, web browser and operating system is the best defense against viruses, malware and other online threats.

Protect all devices that connect to the internet:

Along with computers, smartphones, gaming systems, and other web-enabled devices also need protection from viruses and malware.

Plug & scan:

 “USBs” and other external devices can be infected by viruses and malware. Use your security software to scan them.

Back it up:

Protect your valuable work, music, photos and other digital information by making electronic copies of all important files and storing them safely.
