To mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Open Access BPO’s Information Security & Compliance team launched a month-long information campaign.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an annual reminder for all to secure our data by remaining vigilant against digital threats.
The company’s Information Security & Compliance team believes that staying vigilant means recognizing and addressing top cybersecurity threats. This is why the group’s approach to cybersecurity has always been proactive, prioritizing strategies to threats, including phishing attacks, ransomware, malware, and data breaches.
For the campaign, the team developed a series of educational activities for every week this month, including online courses and quizzes. All these are meant to educate and promote cybersecurity awareness and best practices.
The information campaign aims to educate employees about the importance of safeguarding their digital assets and information.
The team also shared some data security best practices for everyone to follow while at work:
Every employee plays a crucial role in bolstering our cybersecurity.
Vigilance starts with practicing strong password hygiene, regularly updating passwords and being cautious of phishing attempts. Report any suspicious activity promptly. Engage in ongoing cybersecurity training to stay informed.
But of course, the most important thing to do when online is this:
Think before you click.
Whether it’s an email attachment, a link, or a pop-up, pause and verify before taking any action. Cyber threats often disguise themselves as familiar elements. Stay vigilant, stay informed, and remember that your attention to detail is a critical asset in our collective defense against cyber threats.
