October: National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019

Each October the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies provides helpful tips and best practices in recognition of National Cybersecurity Month.

This year's theme is OWN IT. SECURE IT. PROTECT IT.

Information Security has covered many of the subtopics in each of the theme's areas of focus, such as MFA, phishing and strong passwords, but there are a few that may be of interest that we have not covered, such as traveling tips, your digital home and social media bots.
