Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Oct

Fall is finally here and while some may be celebrating pumpkin spice flavors and Halloween, we’re celebrating Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Let this be a month where you focus on cybersecurity too.

Launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in October 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a broad effort to help all Americans stay safer and more secure online. This year’s theme “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.”

In today’s tech-fueled times, your homes, societal well-being, economic prosperity, and our nation’s security are all impacted by the internet. That’s why the National Cyber Security Alliance has chosen to focus on the role we all play in cybersecurity awareness as this year’s theme for the month.

You’ve heard all of the statistics before, but here are some of the ones we think you should see again:

  1. The yearly cost of cybercrime in the U.S. is roughly $600 billion.
  2. 43% of all cyberattacks directly target small businesses.
  3. Human error results in 95% of all cybersecurity attacks.
  4. Every 14 seconds ransomware infects a business computer.

The world has learned that small businesses need a multi-layered security approach. It must focus on everything from 24/7 Network Security and Unified Threat Management to Endpoint Security and Mobile Device Management to Email Encryption and Multi-Factor Authentication, and more.

Doing so requires making cybersecurity a priority – and looping in experts that know how to do it best.

Gone are the days were setting up antivirus and a firewall were enough. Today, you need 24/7, active, managed IT security solutions to protect all of your endpoints from both external and internal threats. Our iaGuardianSecure solution is a big piece of the puzzle – bringing together strategy and technology.

This month at Info Advantage, we’ll be sharing more tips that will empower you and your business to own your role in protecting your part of cyberspace by implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, and training employees! We also have an in-person event later this month about Cybersecurity on October 20thsign up!
