KPMG Global Cyber Day initiative
Keeping organizations secure depends on helping everyone to be cyber smart. And that starts with our young people. With 33% of internet users under 18, it's imperative that we educate them on staying safe online. 1
The KPMG Global Cyber Day program aims to make a difference in every community around the world by helping young people and all those who support them learn how to protect themselves and others online.
Throughout October, KPMG cybersecurity professionals help students, teachers and parents become more cyber-aware through interactive classroom sessions, both in person and virtually.
Our Global Cyber Day coincides with International Cyber Security Awareness Month. This internationally recognized campaign promotes cybersecurity among organizations and the public.
