In a world inundated with bite-sized information, it’s crucial to give cybersecurity the attention it deserves. As we navigate this digital era, its impact on individuals and society at large cannot be overstated

Here’s a bit of history: 2023 marks the 20th year of this crucial initiative, launched in 2003 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance. Over the last two decades, October has provided a dedicated platform to highlight the significance of cybersecurity in both public and private sectors. Each year, industry leaders share invaluable resources to empower individuals and businesses in fortifying their security posture.

This year’s themes bring us back to basics, addressing the pervasive threats we face:

  • Use strong passwords and a password manager
  • Implement Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
  • Recognize and report phishing attempts
  • Keep software up to date
