This year’s theme for Cybersecurity Awareness Month focuses on how to #BeCyberSmart. It’s a month that’s all about promoting a safer and more vigorous cybersecurity culture through awareness, education, and most importantly, best practices that you can put into place today. More simply put, it’s all about practicing safety. And you know that’s what we’re all about, too. Because while technology is a sophisticated defense mechanism, it alone is not sufficient.
Do we expect everyone to become an expert overnight? Of course not.
But do we think that everyone has their own part to do day-in and day-out? Absolutely.
Define and communicate #BeCyberSmart best practices.
Having clearly written, easy-to-understand guidelines for using technology safely isn’t negotiable—it’s paramount.
Establish a culture of careful cyber behavior.
Once you have best practices in place, consider them an extension of the very pillars that define your organization, its brand, and the people that make it what it is. When caution becomes as integrated into your company culture as your values, cybersecurity awareness will become as second nature as checking your email.
Practice what you preach and lead by example.
Cybercriminals can target any employee at any level of a business, from entry-level to c-suite executive. That means that your cybersecurity protocols aren’t just for your employees—they’re for you, too! No one (no matter how sophisticated your technology might be) is invulnerable. And remember: cybersecurity awareness is an ongoing effort, not a one-time exercise.
Don’t have best practices in place? Now’s the time to #BeCyberSmart.
What better time to invest in your employees’ safety than Cybersecurity Awareness Month? Cybersecurity Awareness Training encompasses all that this month-long celebration is about: cybersecurity know-how, conscious awareness of and attention to mission-critical details, familiarity with current trends and threats, and of course, the most practical ways to implement all of it.
So, how do you enable your employees to #BeCyberSmart? It takes more than technology. It takes education of the highest degree, constant vigilance, and industry-recognized support and experience.
