Why Me?

'Why Me' focuses on understanding cyber threats and why cybercriminals or malicious individuals may be targeting you.

This week we will look into the following:

  • Understanding cyber threats and how they work
  • Ransomware and malware as a form of cyber threat
  • Identity theft
  • The long game for cybercriminals

Begin this week by watching the Why Me? video (transcript) as this is a common question that as a Staff, Teacher or Student you may be asking yourself. Then go to the website “haveibeenpwned.com” to do a self check up on the information that is out in the public about your accounts and may be used by a cybercriminal.

This week choose one or more daily cyber security topic(s), read, learn and apply to be more aware of how and why you can be a target.
