CyberSafeNV is excited to be greeting the 17th annual Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM), previously known as the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). “National” was dropped from the original name to allow for this month to be adopted around the world; making October a Cyber Security Awareness Month, a global effort to help everyone stay protected whenever and however you connect. Annually, there are different themes. This year’s theme is Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart, emphasizing the role everyone plays in protecting their online lives.
CyberSafeNV is proud to be a champion, do our part, and support this online safety and education initiative this October.
COVID-19 has fundamentally, and most likely permanently, changed the way we work, do business, socially interacts, and engage over the internet. Organizations around the world have shifted much of their workforce to work from remote-home offices; changing the types of security controls needed and required. To support these challenges, CyberSafeNV will develop and send some best practice guides for telework as well as information on general cyber security topics to help you, your family, co-workers, and our community and state become more cyber security aware and smart Therefore, throughout the month of October, you will receive and see emails, website updates, and/or social media postings. So please follow us on Twitter @CyberSafeNV, Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/cybersafenv/), and LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/cybersafenv).
