Malicious cyber actors pose a persistent and growing threat to our country. Companies from all industries (health, education, law enforcement, etc.) have all been hit by ransomware attacks, delaying crucial services and even can jeopardize national and economic security, public health, and our daily safety.

The month of October 2021 has been designated as Cyber Security Awareness Month 2021. National Cyber Security Awareness Month is more important than ever, with phishing and cyber-attacks occurring every 39 seconds. In actuality, 64% of businesses globally have been subjected to at least one sort of cyber-attack, with human error accounting for 90% of all cyber incursions. These figures emphasize the continued threat that businesses confront, as well as the need of ensuring cyber security knowledge at all levels.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is aimed to provide people and organizations with the resources they need to protect their data online and avoid cyber-attacks. During this month, we want to encourage and play a role in protecting our data and devices through enhanced cybersecurity knowledge and being "cyber smart".
