October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – Assess Your Business Risks

October 4, 2022

It’s a great time of year to ensure your company is protected from cyber risks. Amerisure recognizes National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, organized by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and held every October as a collaborative effort between the government and the technology industry. It aims to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity at home, in schools and in the workplace.

Now in its 19th year, the month-long campaign has chosen See Yourself in Cyber as its theme. It demonstrates that while cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject, ultimately, it’s about people. This October will focus on the “people” part of cybersecurity, providing information and resources to help educate the public and ensure all individuals and organizations make smart decisions now and in the future.
