It’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

Did you know October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)? This annual awareness campaign was developed by the Department of Homeland Security to educate and raise awareness about cybersecurity. Each week of NCSAM has a different theme, and this week’s theme is Every Day Steps Towards Online Safety with Stop.Think.Connect.™

Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and Stop.Think.Connect aims to increase people's understanding of cyber threats by getting everyone, regardless of industry, corporation size, or user type, to take steps towards being more secure. In honor of this theme, we thought there’d be no better way to kick-off NCSAM than to sit down with our resident cybersecurity expert and CEO, James Litton to discuss cybersecurity trends and what organizations can do to mitigate security threats.

Watch our interview with him below:
