It’s almost October meaning it’s time for pumpkin spice everything, Halloween preparations, and Cybersecurity Awareness Month! The month of October is designated to educate the public about the importance of cybersecurity.
For 31 days straight, we will be posting a tip a day on our Facebook page, so be sure to “like” us so you don’t miss out!
According to the Department of Homeland Security, the monthly awareness program was “designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity, provide them with tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase the resiliency of the Nation in the event of a cyber incident.”
With the direction technology is headed, it’s no secret that cybersecurity is at the top of the concern list for people all over the world. Global Cyberattacks, data breaches, and ransomware attacks have dominated the headlines recently, exposing citizens to an insurmountable amount of cyber problems. While these problems are in fact very real, we believe that a true weapon against cyber-destruction is knowledge.
In some cases, there is a breakout of a phenomenon known as “security fatigue.”
Is security fatigue real?
With the increasing number of cyber problems accumulating on a daily basis, it seems that individuals have been developing a phenomenon known as “security fatigue,” or risky computing behavior in response to too many instructions and ads against such attacks.
Constantly changing passwords, two factor authentication, captcha, and strong passwords are said to potentially add too much of a burden on employees. For those advanced companies, you might start seeing a move towards biometrics rather than counting on ever-changing passwords to act as your security wall.
For those of us who do not have access to biometrics and fingerprint authentication, we’re going to bring an innovative spin to tried-and-true methods all of us should be putting into practice.
