Individual Data Security & Organizational Data Security Go Hand in Hand
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). More than half of employees still working from home – a situation that will likely continue well into 2021. Therefore, it’s critical for businesses to realize that individual data security and organizational data security are more intertwined than ever. The necessity for comprehensive cybersecurity measures across devices and locations has never been more important. Fittingly, this week’s NCSAM theme is “If You Connect It, Protect It.”

However, you also need to ensure (and provide the tools and resources necessary to do so) that their home networks are secure. In other words, individual data security and organizational data security must both be prioritized for better protection.
