The 20th Cybersecurity Awareness Month is upon us, and it’s the ideal time to build next-gen resilience into your critical infrastructure now while preparing for the cyber challenges of tomorrow. This year, the theme is Secure Our World,” highlighting the vital need for all of us—from individuals and families to small businesses and enterprises—to do our part in securing our digital world. 

The program lays out four best practices to implement today to keep cybercriminals at bay:

  2. Turn on multi-factor authentication (MFA) where possible
  3. Stay vigilant against phishing scams and report possible attempts
  4. Update software versions and install the latest security patches on devices
