October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

Governor Cuomo announced the start of Cyber Security Awareness Month in New York and issued a proclamation in support to raise citizen awareness about cyber based threats and how to stay safe online.

In its 10th year, the goal of the national campaign is to raise cyber security awareness across the country and remind citizens, businesses, government, and schools that being safe and secure online is a shared responsibility.

The NYS Office of Information Technology Services, Enterprise Information Security Office (ITS EISO) is providing a number of educational resources to the public, including an electronic Cyber Security Awareness Toolkit. The Toolkit includes cyber security themed posters, calendars, guides, brochures, and other content that can be downloaded to help promote and reinforce cyber safety in practical, informative, entertaining, and usable ways.

Today, The Business Council Tech Roundtable will focus on the topic of cyber security as Richard Comeau, executive director, Security Benchmarks Division Center for Internet Security (CIS) discusses Cyber-Security Challenges to Government and Business Operations.
