October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This year the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency’s (“CISA”) campaign, “See Yourself in Cyber” demonstrates that while cyber security may seem like a complex subject, ultimately, it’s really about people. Their website has great resources to learn more about how to reduce cybersecurity threats and protect yourself online: https://www.cisa.gov/cybersecurity-awareness-month
Prio would like to highlight 4 steps that the CISA recommends that you can do to keep yourself cyber safe:
- Turn on Multi-Factor Authentication
- Use Strong Passwords
- Recognize and Report Phishing
- Update Your Software
