Did you know October is Cybersecurity Awareness month? Since 2004, October has been the designated month to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally. This year’s theme is ‘See Yourself in Cyber’ which demonstrates that while cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject, ultimately, it’s really all about the people.
This October, Cybersecurity Awareness month aims to focus on the “people” aspect of cybersecurity and how each person can do their part to stop cybercriminals. This topic is especially important in 2022 as thousands of employees are now working in a hybrid/remote work environment. Cyberattacks such as phishing and social engineering are much more common and it is up to each and every one of us to do our part to mitigate these risks.
Our Information Security team knows first-hand how important it is for employees to remain vigilant and be able to spot an attack or threat. Keeping employees up-to-date on the ever-evolving tactics of cybercriminals will allow organizations to safeguard their most sensitive data as well as discover vulnerabilities before attackers do.
