Take Action during Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and Camden County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is joining with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) to encourage local citizens to take time to learn more about staying cyber secure.

“Cyber Security Awareness Month is a great opportunity for Camden County citizens to learn how to protect themselves before a cyber-attack occurs,” said Camden County EMA Director Chuck White. “We encourage preparedness for all emergencies and taking the necessary steps to stop unauthorized access or damage to a computer system may prevent the loss of personal information.”

Citizens and their loved ones can prepare by dedicating a little time each week this month by focusing on:

  • Social Media Profile Security;
  • Profile Management;
  • Mobile Device Safety; and
  • Phishing – Suspicious Phone Calls and Emails.

Specific information and tips will be posted throughout the month on the Camden County EMA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. Residents can learn more tips on how to become cyber and tech ready by visiting gema.georgia.gov/plan-prepare/ready-georgia
