“Being the central driver of Government’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) policy, programmes and initiatives in Malta it is imperative for MITA to lead the National Cyber Security campaign. This means our Agency is key to invest in the latest technological developments and applicability in order to reduce cyber security threats and challenges while increasing recognition on a nation-wide scale of the importance to adopt cyber security measures.”
“In the same way we do our utmost to protect ourselves in the physical world, we need to make sure we take care of our security, and the ones we love, in the digital world.”
“On a national level, Malta has a strategy to make sure we have the highest level of cyber security for all those using the internet and the digital world in general.”
“The Cyber Security Malta Campaign is very important because it is educating the general public about the risks related to our digital activity. It is in everyone’s best interest to be informed about this initiative.”
“As our reliance on technology increases, so does the impact of cybercrime on everyday life. Cybercriminals thrive on user error and organizational complacency towards cybersecurity. As society attempts to ‘keep up’ in such a fast-moving environment, the Cyber Security Awareness Campaign has aided in filling this gap by providing information about the newest cyber risks.”
Campaigns like Cyber Security Malta are very important since they help the general public staying safe online by constantly raising awareness about what could be digitally harmful to us. Thank you Cyber Security Malta!
Passwords! If users only get to know the dangers of weak passwords! The key to this is education – from primary schools to companies. Thanks to Cyber Security- Malta, this will help solve a big loop hole that is never taken seriously.
We believe that the education of our young Maltese students necessitates the use of digital technologies. The One Tablet Per Child project is one initiative in this regard. This initiative has highlighted the need for cyber security education which ensures our children’s responsible and secure use of such technologies.
