Cybersecurity: Protect Yourself Online

Cybersecurity Awareness is the practice of recognizing potential security threats and taking proactive steps to protect an individual or organization’s digital assets. It involves understanding the risks associated with technology and implementing measures to reduce the likelihood of a security breach. This includes educating employees on best practices for using the internet and other digital technologies, implementing security measures such as firewalls, antivirus software, and encryption, and creating policies and procedures to ensure the safety of confidential data. Cybersecurity Awareness is essential for any organization that stores, processes, or transmits data electronically, as the potential for data loss and identity theft is always present.
