Computer Technologies pledges commitment to cybersecurity
Software development company Computer Technologies, Inc. has announced its commitment to Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held annually in October, by signing up as a 2021 Champion and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy. The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Programme is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, non-profit organisations and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.’
This year, the Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main weekly focus areas will revolve around:
- Understanding and implementing basic cyber hygiene, including the importance of strong passwords, using multi-factor authentication, performing software updates, and backing up data.
- Recognizing and reporting phishing attempts whether it’s through email, text messages, or chat boxes.
- Empowering individuals to not only practice safe online behaviour but consider joining the mission of securing our online world by considering a career in cybersecurity!
- Making cybersecurity a priority in business by making products and processes “secure by design” and considering cybersecurity when purchasing new internet-connected devices.
A spokesman for Computer Technologies Inc. says: "If everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
"Now in its 18th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Computer Technologies, Inc. is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security."
