October: An important month for Security Awareness and digital skills education

The month of October has many commemorations. This first week of October it is National Digital Inclusion Week and Oasis celebrates helping people learn to use technology and the internet for more than two decades. Then, October is also CyberSecurity Awareness Month and Oasis encourages all users of the internet to learn all they can to protect themselves while they are online and using technology.

Oasis offers digital skills classes to help people be safe while going cyber in October and every month after.
