Cybersecurity on the go is a big part of securing your information from those who would exploit it. Cybersecurity isn’t something to take lightly and securing your electronics no longer applies only to your home or office.
For those of us who travel, for business or pleasure, domestic or international, taking proactive steps to secure Internet-enabled devices is the key. As a matter of fact, even using your phone online while on the go poses a risk to your data. It’s important to know how and when to protect yourself.
Michael Saunders & Company is proud to be one of the few real estate companies considered a Champion of Cybersecurity by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency.
Cybersecurity On The Go Resources
Most of us stay connected online daily. Whether it’s using our smartphones to connect for business, personal, or to catch up with loved ones, many are never far away from that online connection. Handheld gaming devices, tablets, and laptops are used daily to keep us current on bills, communicating with friends and family, work, and entertainment.
CISA and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) announce the theme for Cybersecurity Month:
“Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.”
The idea is to remind individuals and organizations be vigilant while protecting their devices, personal accountability, and staying educated on taking steps to enhance online security.
NCSAM emphasizes “If You Connect It, Protect It.” Throughout October, CISA and NCSA has provided resources to help us learn more on the topic.
Use NCSAM’s hashtag #BeCyberSmart before and during October to promote your involvement in raising cybersecurity awareness.
