CyberRes to hold and participate in number of cybersecurity events in October
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Oct. 4, 2022 — CyberRes, a Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) line of business, today announced its renewed commitment to Cybersecurity Awareness Month as an official National Cybersecurity Alliance “Champion Organization” for the ever-growing global effort to promote awareness of online safety and privacy.
The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme. Cyber resilience happens when individuals become more educated on what more they can do while at the same time relying on organizations to deploy the tools and processes that layer security and are ready to respond and recover in cases where it is needed for business continuity.
This year’s theme is “See Yourself in Cyber” with one of the major goals focusing on what individuals can do to protect data. The key areas of focus are:
- Enabling multi-factor authentication
- Using strong passwords and a password manager
- Updating software
- Recognizing and reporting phishing
“Massive data breaches and hackers are often occupying the news headlines, which makes it seem like little can be done at the individual level. This year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is educating people on how they can empower themselves to protect data and enhance digital security,” said John Delk, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Security, CyberRes. “As a Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champion, CyberRes is in a strong position to provide individuals and companies with the tools and professional services to help them maintain cyber resiliency.”
During Cybersecurity Awareness Month, CyberRes will have a number of activities to educate people about cybersecurity. These events kick off on Oct. 5 with CyberRes participating in the SecTor 2022 Conference in Toronto where CTO Stephan Jou will present From the Field - Stories of Successfully Detecting Cyber Attacks on Oct. 6.
Planned CyberRes activities for Cybersecurity Awareness include:
- Oct. 5-6: SecTor 2022
