As part of its new #BeCyberSmart campaign, TikTok is launching a video series where creators and company employees tell cybersecurity tales.
With our daily lives increasingly moving to the online space, online security is becoming more and more critical. To mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month, TikTok is launching a new campaign titled #BeCyberSmart, featuring a series of tips on its @TikTokTips account.
The initiative aims to raise awareness about online security, scams, and hacker threats and educate its users on cybersecurity threats that could potentially compromise their account security.
As part of the campaign, TikTok employees, including TikTok Chief Security Officer Roland Cloutier; and TikTok creators like comedian @alex_falcone, will narrate stories about cybercrimes and suggest how to #BeCyberSmart.
The campaign was launched a few weeks after the video-sharing platform announced its decision to sponsor the inaugural US Cyber Games and the US Cyber Team to encourage and inspire young people from all backgrounds to pursue a career in cybersecurity.
TikTok’s popularity, especially among younger audiences, could potentially be a catalyst for raising awareness on the issue of cybersecurity threats and interest among the new generations in pursuing careers in this specific field.
