October is Cyber Security Awareness Month!

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2004, is an annual awareness-raising effort that seeks to encourage everyone to protect their networks and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.

Today’s Tip:

Keep a Clean Machine.

Keep security software current: Having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system
are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats.

Automate software updates: Many software programs will automatically connect and update to defend
against known risks. Turn on automatic updates if that’s an available option..

Protect all devices that connect to the Internet: Along with computers, smart phones, gaming systems,
and other web-enabled devices also need protection from viruses and malware.

Plug & scan: “USBs” and other external devices can be infected by viruses and malware. Use your security
software to scan them
