October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), and it is the perfect time to learn the easiest ways to protect your customers.
With the rapid growth of technology and constant changes in connectivity, cybersecurity is a top-of-mind issue for every IT organization. An increase in connected devices, the adoption of new identity management protocols and the expansion of AI and IoT all create new points of vulnerability, and hackers are keen to exploit every possible weakness. To ensure maximum protection however, security must be approached in layers.
What is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month?
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month or NCSAM, is an internationally recognized campaign held in countries around the world every October with the goal of promoting public awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. Another aim is to provide information to help individuals and businesses create a safer internet environment.
“Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.”
