Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart
In these COVID-19 times, people of all walks of life are doing more on the internet than ever before — often from home. And that provides greater opportunities for cybercriminals to launch creative, targeted cyberattacks that can affect the privacy and security of information valuable to individuals, organizations, and the Federal government.
Govplace is proud to participate in National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), a joint effort between the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). Now in its 17th year, NCSAM continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across our Nation, ensuring that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.
“If you connect it, protect it.”
This year, NCSAM is encouraging individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity. If you have devices connected to the internet, each of those devices should be protected and secured — whether the device is at home, at work, in your car, or in your pocket.
Every individual can do their part to #BeCyberSmart by adopting positive, lasting cybersecurity habits. Here are a few important focus areas:
