Synagex Celebrates Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
Happy Monday, and welcome to Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
As if October wasn't the coolest month already—with fall things, pumpkins and spooky stuff—we're proud to be Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions and celebrate our favorite topic, cybersecurity, alongside the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA).
This Year's Theme is "See Yourself in Cyber", and we LOVE IT.
Synagex has long been strong advocates of the PEOPLE part of cybersecurity, and this theme is all about educating everyone, about the little—and EASY—steps that us people can all do to stay more cyber secure, which includes:
📱 Using Multi-factor Authentication.
🔒 Using Strong Passwords & Password Managers.
🔄 Keeping Your Software Up-to-Date.
🎣 Identifying & Reporting Phishing Attempts.
Us People Can Be the Strongest Line of Defense (...or the Weakest)
At the end of the day, it's us humans that actually aren't that great at cybersecurity. 85% of security breaches involve a human element, error or oversight. So what can we do when we're apt to click on the things we shouldn't? STAY AWARE. Awareness is key to combating cyber risk. Taking the 4 simple steps outlined above will have you well on your way to better cyber hygiene, and, as we like to say, becoming a cybersecurity ninja.
