October 15, 2020

This month, October 2020, is Cybersecurity Awareness month, co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA). Its theme, “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.” is designed to empower individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting cyberspace. A key message of this theme is “If You Connect IT, Protect It.”  Individuals and organizations working together on protection methods will significantly improve the overall effectiveness of those efforts.
