Cybersecurity Awareness Month & Halloween Costume Ideas
Oct 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 31
Firewalls.com/James Stanley, CISA

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and that means it’s a great time to take a hard look at your online posture, protection, and habits to see where there’s room for improvement. Among the organizations with resources to help, is the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, or CISA. On this episode, we welcome James Stanley of CISA to talk about why raising awareness of cybersecurity is so important this month (and all year) and the need for personal responsibility in cybersecurity. Plus, since 2020 is the year of the teleworker, we get into some telework tips from CISA for remote workers, IT staff, and business leadership.

On our Ransomware Reckoning segment, Andrew N goes over a new approach to hacking affecting remote learners and the schools they learn from.

In our headlines segment, Andrew H & Kevin discuss a breach involving some Robinhood investors, the need for a cyber resilience strategy, and a British government campaign to get more cybersecurity workers that went a bit wrong.
