"Adlumin is committed to moving the mission of Cybersecurity Awareness Month forward and providing superior external and internal visibility to threats and helping companies eliminate risks and command authority of their organization's environment," says Stephanie Broyles, CMO at Adlumin. "We are excited to be a Champion this year and look forward to celebrating the power of cybersecurity and the roles we can play to protect online information and privacy."

From mobile to connected home devices, technology is becoming more intertwined with our lives every day. And while the evolution of technology is moving at the speed of sound, cybercriminals are working just as fast to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.

This year, the Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main focal areas revolve around four key fundamental cybersecurity best practices:

  • Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.

  • Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.

  • Enabling multi-factor authentication on personal devices and business networks.

  • Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.

Now in its 19th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Adlumin is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
