October is Cybersecurity Month – How to Stay Safe Online
It’s easy to stay safe online – A Message from our president, Edward Davis.
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a global effort to help everyone stay safe and protected when using technology whenever and however you connect. Systems Support Group, Inc. is proud to be a Champion for the 7th year and support this online safety and education initiative this October.
This month is all about taking action! All month long, we are promoting these key behaviors to encourage every employee to take control of their online lives. There are all kinds of ways to stay safe and secure online but even just practicing these cybersecurity basics can make a huge difference: Enable Multi-Factor Authentication, Use Strong Passwords and a Password Manager, Update Your Software and Recognize and Report Phishing.
The cybersecurity and digital privacy of our employees and customers are important to SSGI. Throughout the month of October, SSGI will provide helpful tips and information on how to implement and manage the cybersecurity basics. Follow our Twitter feed and our Facebook page to learn about these basics as well as learn about other technology subjects.
We want to help you, your family, your friends, and our community stay safe all year long, too. We encourage you to sign up as an individual Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champion. After signing up, you’ll receive a toolkit of free resources, including simple steps you can take to #BeCyberSmart.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month is co-led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
