October Is Not Just For Trick Or Treating; It's For CyberSecurity

It seems only appropriate that October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). The month where we have traditionally tried to scare the pants off each other, we now place a focus on real-life terror! Cyberattacks are real and are happening everywhere. There are all types of attacks, and individuals and businesses are all at risk! Education is the frontline to keep yourself and your business safe. This month there is a unique collaboration between the Government and Industry to ensure all Americans have the resources to learn how to be safer and more secure online.

This year’s message from the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) is: Own IT, Secure IT, and Protect IT. Through this message, the NICCS provides a comprehensive Toolkit that guides individuals and businesses on the safer practices involving:

  • Online Privacy
  • How to Create a Strong Password
  • Multi-factor Authentication
  • Working Secure
  • Theft and Scams
  • And Many More...

There are so many different types of cyberattacks and so many types of cybercriminals that education is key to keep your business safer. Below are a few our Pendello blogs breaking a few of these attacks down in terms everyone can understand...
