Are you ready to get more cyber secure? As much as we’d like to say otherwise, every year there are increased cyber-attacks, spam, phishing emails and information disorder in our neck of the woods. That is why we’ve decided to publish and give away our new booklet: 52 cybersecurity habits. And it’s free!!

52 cybersecurity habits for a cybersecure future booklet frontpage

Our weekly cyber secure habits reminder emails and PDF booklet will help you get your cyber security and data hygiene in order. You can sign up for your copy here.

Cybersecurity and security awareness is about repeated behaviors and awareness reminders. We are what we do – and we are what we don’t do. To become safe online we need to be aware of the risks and develop behaviors that minimize the likelihood of us getting into trouble. We need cybersecurity habits!

How Could Cybersecurity Habits Help?

Did you know that around 90% of all cyber-attacks begin with a phishing email? What if we could all become a little more sceptic around emails and more aware of the risks they pose? If we would stop falling for phishing emails, we could almost put an end to cyber-attacks and data leaks. We could save trillions of dollars within the global economy. And best of all, we would put criminals out of business. Our weekly reminders are designed to help all of us do just that.

Weekly Reminders for Cybersecurity Habits

Because people tend to start strong and then forget, we’ve decided to offer 52 Cybersecurity Habits both as a booklet and as weekly emails. If you sign up you will receive a printer friendly PDF with all our cybersecurity habits for the next 52 weeks, that is one year. We will start with sending you a download link for the booklet upon your signup and the following week you will get your first cybersecurity habits reminder. 

Don’t worry, if you don’t feel like doing it anymore you can always unsubscribe from the list. You will still have your trusty PDF booklet to go by. 

So, What’s In It?

The 52 cybersecurity habits booklet is for everyone and works both at home and at the office. You are welcome to share it with your family and co-workers as much as you can. 

The 12 themes of 52 cybersecurity habits booklet set up in green calendar boxes

The booklet and Weekly Cybersecurity Habits email contain simple to follow behaviors and a short text describing why they are important. We segmented the risks into 12 themes. For example, in the first theme, while we’re fresh, we’ll tackle phishing. Then come “Keeping sensitive data safe”, “Passwords” and “Online security”. Take a look at the picture above for all 12 themes. 

For each theme we’ve created four or five simple to follow habits, one for each week. For example: “Locking the phone”, “hovering over links in emails”, “using multi-factor authentication”, and “updating your computer’s software”. 

Example of weekly cybersecurity habits from 52 shades of cybersecurity booklet

Cyber security awareness is not something people acquire over night because they read a PDF booklet once. It’s remembering those little things again and again while we go about our day, both online and off-line. This is why these little reminders are so important. They help us remember and create those important security habits so they become a part of our routine. 

But it’s the middle of the year now!

Practicing good habits does not need to be a New Year’s resolution. You can start any time of the year because it’s never a bad time to become more cyber secure. If you only just heard of our 52 Cybersecurity Habits booklet now, that’s okay! You can jump right in and sign up for our booklet and our Weekly Cybersecurity Habits emails. We’re not leaving you behind!

Here’s to a more cyber secure future with easy cyber security habits for all!
