PPLC Program Guide

National Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is observed annually in October. Created by a partnership of the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance 14 years ago, NCASM aims to educate internet users on the simple steps they can take to stay safe online. As more and more of our time is spent online, it is important to reflect on how to combat the very real threats that face our devices and personal information.

The Internet is a staple in today's modern life. When used properly it is a powerful tool and a great resource. While the Internet creates all types of opportunities, it can also be dangerous to those who do not know how to use it appropriately. Students and young people are especially vulnerable to internet scams, viruses, and cyberbullying. Children are not the only victims online. Adults and seniors can also fall victim to identity theft, phishing scams, and computer viruses. Pinellas County Public Libraries are dedicated to making sure Pinellas County residents have all the tools and information they need to safely and responsibly navigate the Internet.

The Pinellas Public Library Cooperative's member libraries have officially adopted Safe and Secure Online as its official cyber safety program. The program is provided by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education and includes cyber safety lessons featuring the iconic cartoon cat Garfield!

Teaching others how to navigate the web safely and responsibly is a shared goal for Pinellas County libraries and Safe and Secure Online. The online program includes lessons for children, parents, and seniors and addresses numerous cyber safety issues including privacy, the dangers of posting online, online etiquette, cyberbullying, and more. Safe and Secure Online also offers non-Garfield resources for parents and seniors on social media, passwords, scams, online banking, and basic computer protection. The resources are free and available to access online at any time. In addition to adopting Safe and Secure Online as their official internet safety program, PPLC member libraries also offer cyber safety training programs.
