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.
