As we continue to expand our IT Consulting Service offerings, JSG is excited to participate in Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Every October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across the United States. Led by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA), Cybersecurity Awareness Month shares messages and weekly themes of the importance of staying safe online. The evergreen theme – Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart – encourages individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.
Throughout the past year and a half, our already virtual world depends even more on the internet. While an increased online presence can be positive, Cybersecurity Awareness Month encourages everyone to take increased ownership of enhanced online activity and the important security practices that come along with it. The virtual safety of our community, and, ultimately, our nation, depends on our personal online safety practices.
Cybersecurity is important to JSG and we are committed to helping our clients become more resilient. So, this month we’ll be sharing information on:
- Be Cyber Smart
- Take simple actions to keep our digital lives secure
- Fight the Phish!
- Highlight the dangers of phishing attempts – which can lead to ransomware or other malware attacks – and how to report suspicious emails
