This week’s blog features an article from our partners at TPx Communications about Cyber Security Awareness Month: “4 Ways to Celebrate Cybersecurity Awareness Month”
For the past 18 years, October has been dedicated to raising awareness around cybersecurity. It’s an important issue that is top of mind for businesses all over the world. To help businesses be cyber smart, we’ve put together four ways you can celebrate this Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
Stay in the Know
Education is such a critical aspect of Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The more knowledge that employers and employees have, the better prepared they will be against the threat of cyberattacks. With 95% of cybersecurity breaches due to human error, the importance of educating businesses and employees alike is critical. TPx has a Cybersecurity and Ransomware Hub with educational resources that can help you improve your security posture and understand the threat landscape better.
Understand Your Risks
The threat of cyberattacks continues to increase year over year. The FBI reported a 300% increase in cybercrimes since the beginning of the pandemic. With such a drastic increase in cyber threats, businesses need to understand their vulnerabilities. Especially when you consider cybersecurity prevention efforts can save businesses up to $1.4 million per attack.
