National Cyber Security Awareness Month

US-CERTOctober is National Cyber Security Awareness Month.  This was released by US-CERT, and I thought it was worth posting.

“October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to raise awareness about cybersecurity. In partnership with DHS, the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) has released the first in a series of tips focused on helping people protect their online activities and increasing cybersecurity awareness. This tip describes how users can protect their online accounts using strong authentication techniques, including the use of biometrics or a security key.

Users and administrators are encouraged to review the Stop.Think.Connect. tip Lock Down Your Login and the US-CERT Security Tip Choosing and Protecting Passwords for additional information.”

I have included the Lock Down Your Login Video below.  Your tax dollars at work.  What can I say?
