October wass Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a time to highlight the importance of having strong cybersecurity measures in place year round.
According to the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC), this year’s theme for the awareness month was “Have you been hacked”? Each week during the awareness month the ACSC has themes and tools about identifying security threats within your organisation and the steps you can take to secure your systems and prevent cyber attacks.
If you’re looking for some immediate ways to improve the security of your organisation, some critical items are:
- Implementing multi-factor authentication
- Conducting employee training on phishing and security best practices
- Ensure your systems are being regularly updated and backed up
- Use a password manager for unique passwords for all accounts, like Bitwarden
