The annual KPMG Global Cyber Day Initiative is a Global Corporate Citizenship program aimed at educating youth of the importance of cyber security and internet risk, as part of KPMG member firms' commitment to supporting the communities in which we operate. 

During the month of October, KPMG cyber security professionals will help students ages 7-16, as well as their teachers and parents, become more cyber aware through interactive classroom sessions including guidance on safe use of personal data, social media, cyber bullying, online gaming and smartphones.

Our Global Cyber Day coincides with International Cyber Security Awareness Month, an internationally recognized campaign focused on promoting cyber security among organizations and the public, and providing resources to be more secure online.
