Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Happy October!

If you don’t know, the month of October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This initiative was launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance & the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in October 2004.

To observe this, we want to share a few cybersecurity tips with you all throughout the month and learn more from you on what you have done to create a cybersecurity culture at your organization. Below is a short one question survey gauging if you feel you have a strong cybersecurity culture. For those that fill it out you have a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

Now, for your first tip!

Use two-factor authentication wherever possible. 

Strong passwords are an essential part of good cyber hygiene. However, it’s even more important to use two-factor or multi-factor authentication. MFA provides layered protection against unauthorized logins by using two or more of the following:

  • something you know, such as passwords
  • something you have, such as a mobile device with an authenticator app
  • something you are, such as your fingerprints

Enabling MFA wherever possible can help protect your data and your access from the bad guys.

Remember, think before you click!
