October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)
Today we are connected to our smartphones or a computer wherever we go, because of that our world is becoming increasingly dependent on cybersecurity. First International Bank & Trust (FIBT) is proud to be a part of the national Cybersecurity Awareness Month to help us all understand the latest ways to protect our friends and families online.
You can greatly increase your cybersecurity online, at work and at home by taking a few simple steps: enable multi-factor authentication, use a trusted password manager and strong passwords, recognize and report phishing, and update your software. Throughout October, we will learn more about these cyber basics through a wide variety of activities and learning opportunities planned for Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is making it possible for you to learn about cyber basics as well as advanced cybersecurity issues.
At CISA’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month website www.cisa.gov/cybersecurity-awareness-month, there is basic information, classes, and even live events happening throughout October. We encourage you to explore the website, view the Tip Sheets and explore the series of webinars including cyber basics such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and password managers.
