October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It is the 19th year of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, co-led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA), and they remind everyone that there are all kinds of ways to keep your data protected this year. This year the theme is See Yourself In Cyber and they are focusing on key behaviors that help keep your data protected.  Below are the key behaviors for protecting your data:

Enabling multi-factor authentication

Using strong passwords and a password manager

Updating software

Recognizing and reporting phishing

You can also refresh your Cybersecurity knowledge with these Online Safety Basics.

While Cybersecurity Awareness Month may be observed every October, we remind you to do your part and educate yourself to be cyber smart throughout the year and remember everyone has a right to a safe internet, so let’s remember to #BeCyberSmart.
