National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Week 4

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 “Safeguarding the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure” which focuses on protecting the country’s critical infrastructure. There are 16 sectors in the nation’s critical infrastructure and it takes both the government and industry to provide proper protection.

Cybersecurity is a team effort; communication and information sharing are the keys to its success. The relationship that the government has with the industry (technology providers, critical infrastructure owners and operators) is crucial to protecting our country and our daily lives from cyber threats. Some ways small business can help is by keeping a clean machine, locking down your logins, and by not opening suspicious emails.
