2018-10-01_1724It's October! As the leaves change to a wonderful pastel of colors, squirrels are preparing by collecting lots of acorns for the winter. Birds are preparing to fly to warmer climates. Children are preparing their best Trick-or-Treat costumes with the hope that  with a good 'Boo' they might get more goodies.

It's  October.  Are you prepared for National Cybersecurity Awareness month?   What's that all about ?

Well, it is not a US holiday.  Most people are not even aware there is such a thing as a Cybersecurity Awareness Month.  America seems to find a way to create a 'event' to drive business to a card shop, flower store, candy store or even to Amazon. But, for this one, I can't even find a Hallmark Card.

So, what is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month? Well, NCSAM 2018 is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.  And its a good thing, too.  Almost everyday, we hear about a new data breach!

At Knogin, we are proud to do our part in helping to educate people on ways to protect themselves from malicious cyber activities that could be damaging to their personal data or their businesses.

All this month we will be publishing important articles and valuable tips to help you be cyber-safe.  Sign-up to get our latest Blog Posts so you don't get spooked by a cyber criminal.  Boo!
