Cybersecurity Awareness Month

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the United States has set October as Nati0nal Cybersecurity Awareness month.

Despite choosing one month to bring public awareness to cybersecurity,  most security professionals recommend practicing cybersecurity year round, not just in October.

You'll probably want to think about things on the list below during October.

  • Anti-Virus

  • Firewalls

  • Backups

  • Software Updates


You should also review the list of what to do when things go wrong (as most things eventually will).   You can find that resource here: http://www.staysafeonline.org/tools-resources/learn-what-do-if-something-goes-wrong
