National Cybersecurity Awareness Month: A Year-Long Effort
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – a time that is dedicated to showcasing how to stay safe online by providing insight and best practices on how to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII), financial and sensitive proprietary data.
The need for proper cybersecurity within the workplace should be a continuous effort throughout the year. With small businesses feeling the brunt of data breach events, many of which are caused by cyberattacks or other security vulnerabilities, a proactive attitude toward cybersecurity risks in the workplace is now more important than ever.
Your employees are ultimately your first line of defense against potential data breaches, and they can make or break your overall business security. However, employees may not realize that protecting business information also means protecting their personal information, too.
