Cybersecurity Awareness Month: See Yourself in Cyber

October marks Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which aims to help everyone stay safer and more secure online. We believe it is a great opportunity to educate, encourage and enable organizations to ensure their cybersecurity strategy is ironclad, so that they can better protect themselves from cybercrime. The?campaign theme (as promoted by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), See Yourself in Cyber, represents the core of cybersecurity, despite the technical complexities: people. The campaign has international support and there are many events, resources, and campaign materials available to help businesses better understand how they can stay protected.
