The month of October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It is dedicated to creating resources and communications for businesses to talk to their customers and employees about staying safe online.
Most cybersecurity articles will warn about massive data breaches, hackers and money lost. Instead, this month reminds people there are plenty of ways to keep your data safe and protected. It’s doing the simple basic things that can make the biggest difference when it comes to cybersecurity.
Everyone has a right to a safe internet, so let’s remember to #BeCyberSmart.
Starting in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaboration between private industry and government to raise awareness about digital security and empower everyone to protect their personal data from cybercrime.
