Recommended Reading as National Cyber Security Month Nears an End

National Cyber Security Month reminds us that we have an obligation to practice safe and secure surfing each and every day. So, have you done something special to recognize this once-a-year reminder?

Did your company implement stronger security practices and train employees on the new and improved practices? Did your company hold events to raise community awareness and educate young people? At a minimum, did you require your employees to change their passwords?

To commemorate the month’s importance, I have assembled ten recommended articles. Some are current while others are a bit older – but still just as relevant as when originally written. Note, I have included the full links instead of abbreviated links for safety. Thanks to all the privacy, security, and infosecurity experts featured.
