From cyber smarts to cybersecurity consulting, we've got the info your business needs

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, now in its 18th year running. As professionals who are passionate about providing lock tight network security through cybersecurity consulting and empowering businesses to protect themselves from attack, we're launching a month-long series on the topic. Each week of October, we'll provide you with the information you need, tips and best practices, and general cyber smarts that will jump-start your company's cybersecurity program. Even if you have a cybersecurity protocol in place, it's important to know that threats in the digital space are always changing, and for the most part, growing in sophistication and sheer volume. Bottom line, it's more important than ever before that you have the tools and technologies in place to protect your organization's data.

Introducing Our Cybersecurity Awareness Month Series

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) leading this year's cybersecurity awareness month with the theme, "Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart." In conjunction with their designated areas of focus each week, our cybersecurity experts will be providing helpful information on this blog. These are the upcoming focal areas you can look forward to.

  • Week 1: Be Cyber Smart
  • Week 2: Phight the Phish!
  • Week 3: Explore. Experience. Share.
  • Week 4: Cybersecurity first

While our content will reflect the areas of focus each week as determined by CISA, our content will also be unique, tapping into the expertise of our cybersecurity consultants.

Why is cybersecurity awareness so important?

These days, it seems every week or even every day has a national designation. And while national donut day might get all the love—after all, who doesn't love donuts?—cybersecurity deserves some extra attention. Attacks on small to enterprise-sized businesses are on the rise, and hackers know smaller to mid-size operations often don't have the same robust security as large companies. Even those who have IT departments know how busy those areas are with organizational needs. It can be hard, if not impossible to dedicate resources to keeping professionals up to date on emerging threats in cyberspace. The result: patching can fall behind. Vulnerabilities remain exposed to potential attacks. Staff doesn't get the regular training they need to be cyber aware. And all of your hard work is at risk of being compromised.

By partnering with a cybersecurity consultant like Locknet Managed IT, in the EO Johnson family of companies, you can rest assured you have the best in cybersecurity protection, provided by premiere experts in the industry.
