National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Since 2003, October has been recognized as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It is an annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and being a better digital citizen.

October has just started and a majority of security companies are promoting internet security. With the holidays fast approaching, it is a crucial time for website owners, especially ones with an e-commerce website, to be cyber secure.

The end of the year is also the season when hackers try to profit the most. Year after year we see the rise of new malware, phishing campaigns, scams, malvertising, ransomware and data breaches.

Cybersecurity is the core of what we do, so we would like to take time this month to help educate internet users and webmasters on the importance of staying safe online.

In order to help raise awareness, we have decided to create content to help answer the following questions:

  • What does a DDoS attack look like?
  • How do passwords get hacked?
  • What is the NIST cybersecurity framework?
  • What is website security?
  • Why do website reinfections happen?
  • How much does it cost to be hacked?
  • Are there ethical hackers?
  • How do I recognize a phishing campaign?
  • What is an SQL injection?
  • What is 2FA?
  • How do I install a free SSL certificate?
  • How do I secure my CMS?
