This October marks the 20th Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a collaboration between government and the security industry aimed at promoting awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. With a new theme titled “Secure Our World,” this global effort encourages everyone to stay safe and protected when using technology, whenever and however you connect.
As our reliance on technology grows, it’s more important than ever to strengthen our cyber habits. There are many ways to stay safe and secure online, but even just practicing these cybersecurity basics can make a huge difference:
- Use Strong Passwords and consider using a Password Manager
- Turn on Multifactor Authentication wherever available
- Recognize Phishing attempts
- Update your Software
Not just in October, but all year long, Biondo Investment Advisors promotes these key behaviors to encourage everyone to take control of their online lives.
