Today we are connected to our smartphones or a computer wherever we go, because of that our world is becoming increasingly dependent on cybersecurity. Bklyn Custom Designs is proud to be a part of the national Cybersecurity Awareness Month (CSAM) to help us all understand the latest ways to protect our businesses, our clients, and our friends & families online.
You can greatly increase your safety online, at work and at home by taking a few simple steps:
- Enable Multi-Factor Authentication,
- Use long, random and unique passwords,
- Think before you click: recognize and report phishing, and
- Update your software.
Takin Action in Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Throughout October, we will learn more about these cyber basics through a wide variety of articles, Live shows, and learning opportunities planned for Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is making it possible for you to learn about cyber basics as well as advanced security issues.
At CISA’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month website www.cisa.gov/cybersecurity-awareness-month, there is basic information, classes, and even live events happening throughout October. We encourage you to explore the website and participate in theme days including Women in Tech, International Day, and for anyone interested in a career in cybersecurity—Career Day. There will also be a series of webinars including cyber basics such as multifactor authentication (MFA) and password managers across the web so check them out.
In the end, the security we place around our businesses & within our communities is only as strong as we are. We also encourage you to visit the CISA website, download the Tips Sheets, and share them with your freelancers, staff, clients, family, and friends. After all of this education, you, your company, and your website will be one of the most secure places online.
