It's Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

When you feel the first chilly breeze of Fall, what is your first thought? Cozy sweaters, perhaps? Is it the football season? Could it be pumpkin spiced lattes? What should it be? Cybersecurity! October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and we’re celebrating in style! Keep your business and yourself cyber-safe with our tips, tricks, and strategies!

Although the best cybersecurity plans are 24/7, 365 days a year, you can double down for one month. Never underestimate the importance of cybersecurity preparedness! 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance in October 2004. In a world where the Internet is rapidly becoming an integral part of our lives, it was created to make Americans safe. Since its inception, the month has only become more important as our lives have become increasingly digital. In past Cybersecurity Awareness Months, both former DHS Secretaries and former Presidents have participated. Our company is only one of many industry participants educating our community on the importance of cybersecurity during this month. Non-profits, colleges, and other organizations are often involved.

31 days of pure digital goodness might seem like a lot, but cybersecurity needs to be something you do all day, every day. We’ll be posting cyber-safety tips every day this month, so be sure to follow us on our social media accounts. Pay attention to weekly blogs (like this one) that will explain how to keep your cybersecurity tight. In between apple pies and watching your favorite team win the big game (or not), keep an eye out for the best cybersecurity advice!
