October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Held every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.
AAFCPAs’ Business & IT Security practice published a comprehensive Cybersecurity Risk Mitigation Guide outlining the most prevalent risks and critical security measures to mitigate these risks, including those posed by:
- Social Engineering Attacks
- The Internet of Things (IoT)
- Software and Hardware Configuration Vulnerabilities
- Web Application Security Vulnerabilities
- Insufficient IT General Controls (ITGCs)
- Lack of Adequate Infrastructure/Resiliency
- Outsourcing Services
- Physical Security Breaches
- Remote Workforces
AAFCPAs reminds clients that the best line of defense in protecting your organization from risks is to remain vigilant and understand your vulnerabilities. AAFCPAs’ Cyber Security & Technology Assessments help identify risks from the use of technology that could potentially cause information loss or financial or reputational harm to your organization.
