[ARCHIVED] Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Rockwall County is participating in the 20th Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, tribal communities, and individuals committed to educating others on online safety.

From mobile to connected home devices, technology is deeply intertwined with our lives. And while the evolution of technology accelerates, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. For 20 Octobers and counting, Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.

Messaging will revolve around four key cybersecurity best practices:

  • Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
  • Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.
  • Backing up your important files
  • Password Security and best practices
