Canadians are among the highest users of internet-enabled computer technology. A priority of Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes is to make the public aware of issues of security and safety, and help Canadians stay safe from cyber threats.
#Fraudchat is running a four-week series during Cyber Security Awareness Month, with our special guest, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Whatever your place of business, creating a culture of cyber security is essential. These chats will cover the following topics:
- Week 2, October 12: Cyber Security in the Workplace is Everyone's Business
- Week 3, October 19: Privacy Protection and the Internet of Things
- Week 4, October 26: Digital Citizenship in an Increasingly Digital World
To follow #fraudchat, members of the public simply need to log on to Twitter from 1 p.m., to 2 p.m., and follow the #Fraudchat hashtag. An application such as "Tweetdeck," which allows users to view tweets containing this hashtag separately, is also helpful in following the chat.
#Fraudchat is an online program that seeks to educate and exchange ideas with the public about financial crimes and fraud. The moderators for this program are Gail Regan (@ReganFCU), and Diane Kelly (@DKellyFCU) of TPS Financial Crimes, along with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (@Canantifraud).
