Englobe is proud to be joining thousands of companies in launching an internal Cybersecurity Awareness Month campaign. Every October across the world, various cybersecurity initiatives continue to raise awareness about the importance of best practices when communicating or carrying out transactions online. Ian Troup, Vice President, Information Technology at Englobe tells us more.
Over the past year and a half, the pandemic has resulted in a greater number of transactions being carried out online. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a time to reflect on our online habits and take increased ownership of the important security practices that come along with it. This year’s themes and hashtags, “#ThinkB4Uclick” and “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart” encourage individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking extra precautions when online.
I committed to sharing monthly cyber tips with Englobe employees this year and so far, my emails have covered several important topics, such as Ransomware.
Often, ransomware attacks are delivered through a phishing communication such as an email. If you are not wary enough, you risk clicking on what looks like an innocent attachment or link asking for your credentials. Providing that information would download the malicious software encrypting the whole network.
We should all approach cybersecurity with care in owning, securing, and protecting all our online accounts and information. For more information, check out your local CSAM online resources:
This Cyber Security Awareness Month, and all throughout the year, remember to do your part in educating yourself and others. #BeCyberSmart and #ThinkB4Uclick!
