October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month! 


The Digital Domain

NCSAM BannerIt seems that almost every week there is another story in the media about a large company who has reported  their systems have been compromised, and that their customers' personal and sensitive information are at risk. The Equifax compromise is but one of many in the past year alone, and by and far the largest. 

It's not just the corporate world that needs to worry about protecting their information, however. You and I, everyone as individuals, need to be concerned about protecting our own information as well. Each day, criminals are looking for ways to profit from everyday people through cyber crime.

To help educate the community on the dangers of cyber crime, the City of Fountain is joining with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance to promote October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Celebrating its 14th year, the theme of National Cyber Security Awareness Month is that of cyber security being "our shared responsibility", underlining the critical role that everyone has in protecting their information in the online world. Throughout the month, we will be sharing tips and information on how to protect yourselves, your families, and your businesses from cyber crime, through this blog, and through our presence on Facebook and Twitter.

To find out more information on this event, along with tips on how to protect your online lives, please visit the NCSAM website and have a look at the resources they offer.
