Four Hundred Monitor, October 5
October 5, 2022 Jenny Thomas
To some people, October means pumpkins, apple picking, and cozy sweaters. But in this world, October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which was launched by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in October 2004. “Awareness” is the key word describing the “holiday,” the point being you want to create cyber awareness to help your organization manage risks and change employee behavior. We write about cybersecurity here in the Jungle quite a bit, basically for the same reasons. We hope by keeping you informed that you, and your organization, will take steps to be safe. Happy October.
