The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency deemed October as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The theme is “If You Connect It, Protect It.” No one knows this better than our Technology Services Team.

Chris Edwards, leads our Technology Services Security Team and he says, “2020 saw a major disruption in the way many of us work, learn and socialize online. Our homes and businesses are more connected than ever. With more people now working from home, these two internet-connected environments are colliding on a scale we’ve never seen before.”

In Week 3 of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Chris focuses on better protection while using social media channels.

The average person spends over two hours a day on social media platforms, connecting with people and organizations. This makes social media a great way for organizations to connect with current and prospective customers. However, the bad guys know this making social media one of their largest targets.
