October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). Since 2003, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month has promoted online safety, and how residents and businesses can protect themselves from cybercrime. And now that our world, devices, and lives are more digitally interconnected than ever, the importance of increased cybersecurity awareness has never been greater.
How AvantGuard Will Be Participating in NCSAM
A month before NCSAM, AvantGuard partnered with INVISUS, one of the leading companies in strengthening residential and business cybersecurity, to bring new cybersecurity offerings for our dealers and their customers. AvantGuard sees the increased importance of cybersecurity, and a growing need in the marketplace for advanced cybersecurity protection. Through this partnership, and during the month of October, AvantGuard will provide our readers with useful information so they can remain protected, but also provide our dealers with the means to offer professional cybersecurity to their customers.
Throughout October, we will be bringing you articles featuring best practices, tips and other information on how residents and businesses can do their part in enhancing cybersecurity.
