If you don’t know, the month of October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This initiative was launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance & the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in October 2004.
To observe this, we want to share a few cybersecurity tips with you all throughout the month and learn more from you on what you have done to create a cybersecurity culture at your organization. Below is a short one question survey gauging if you feel you have a strong cybersecurity culture. For those that fill it out you have a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
Now, for your first tip!
Use two-factor authentication wherever possible.
Strong passwords are an essential part of good cyber hygiene. However, it’s even more important to use two-factor or multi-factor authentication. MFA provides layered protection against unauthorized logins by using two or more of the following:
- something you know, such as passwords
- something you have, such as a mobile device with an authenticator app
- something you are, such as your fingerprints
Enabling MFA wherever possible can help protect your data and your access from the bad guys.
Remember, think before you click!
