Yes, we are aware of cybersecurity. All of the shade thrown on this month tends to undercut the message that the National Cybersecurity Alliance is trying to spread: cybersecurity affects everyone, from a Fortune 500 company to your grandmother and everyone in between.

Antigen Security was founded on the principles of helping to stop cybercriminals. And that’s why we have pledged to be a Cybersecurity Awareness Month champion this year. Since 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of “It’s easy to stay safe online.”

This year, the Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main focal areas revolve around four key fundamental cybersecurity best practices:

  • Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
  • Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.
  • Enabling multi-factor authentication on personal devices and business networks.
  • Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.

“The themes of Cybersecurity Awareness Month align closely with some of our guiding principles,” said Steven Legg, Antigen Security CEO. “Safe online practices such as using multifactor authentication are at the core of our business model. Not only is it good online hygiene, but companies absolutely need to implement it as a first layer of defense and as part of a more robust program.”

Antigen plans on sharing tips throughout the month relating to the best practices that the National Cybersecurity Alliance has outlined, provide some supplemental content,

Now in its 19th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Antigen is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
