National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Week 2

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the National Cyber Security Alliance has a theme for each week for the month. This week’s theme is “Millions of Rewarding Jobs: Educating for a Career in Cybersecurity” Week 2 focuses on educating students of all ages about cybersecurity and to consider a profession in cybersecurity as their career.

There is currently a shortage of qualified cybersecurity professionals and this shortage will only increase if we do not encourage those who might be interested in a cybersecurity career. As we become more connected online in our everyday lives, the need for those who can help keep our businesses protected becomes critical to their success.
