October marks the 17th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). This period continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across the nation. The role of this month, to educate all Americans about the necessity of protecting themselves online, has never been more critical. Here at Network Tech, we have a “security-first” mentality. The challenges presented by COVID-19 and the rise of working from home has resulted in a pressing need to bring cybersecurity to the forefront for professionals across industries.
