October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

There’s no better time to think about securing your data and devices than, well, a month dedicated to cybersecurity. October 2021 marks the 18 years since the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency's (CISA) created Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The CISA originally created the “holiday” to educate people, promote online safety, and spread awareness about both the vulnerabilities of cyberspace and possible solutions.


In that spirit, we’ve put together five cybersecurity tips for individuals who might be unsure of how to protect their digital lives and data.
