That’s it!

Did you know that the United States Department of Homeland Security designates an entire month of every year to cybersecurity awareness? Because of this, QualTel Technologies created an entire division of our company to help organizations manage private information. We believe that any business, despite its size, can fall victim to a cyberattack. Attacks like these cost businesses loyal customers, savings, and even a company’s very existence. If the security of client data concerns you, allow the QualTel team to help you get on board with national cybersecurity awareness efforts outlined by the United States government each year.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month

The event, designated as “National Cybersecurity Awareness Month,” became known as NCSAM. The 30-day affair, held yearly in October, helps the United States government raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. Although the event promotes awareness during the Fall, the United States government considers cybersecurity a year-round priority in protecting citizens.

What is Cybersecurity?

The concept of cybersecurity involves all precautions taken to protect businesses and consumers against internet crimes, especially unauthorized access to private data or computer systems. The Department of Homeland Security began building month-long awareness in 2004 and continues to educate the country on crucial issues such as privacy, consumer devices, and e-commerce. Every year they distribute a comprehensive guide for organizations of all sizes facilitating the use of local resources and providing steps to mitigate risks and protect all Americans.
