We’re Supporting National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Holistic cybersecurity is more important than ever

Technology is evolving, but so are the tactics used by cybercriminals. To be safe and secure online, we all need to be proactive.

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is held annually in October to promote online security and privacy.

Jointly led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Agency of the US Department of Homeland Security, NCSAM is an increasingly global initiative to highlight the importance of a collaborative approach to Internet safety.

Now in its 16th year, NCSAM encourages governments, businesses, nonprofit organisations, industry associations, and educational institutions to spread the message about cybersecurity best practices.

Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.

This year, NCSAM is about emphasizing personal accountability under the theme Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT. With the number of web-enabled intelligent devices rising every day, it’s critical to understand our digital profiles, as well as the threats that exist in cyberspace.

BUI is proud to be a 2019 NCSAM Champion alongside the likes of Microsoft, Kaspersky, McAfee, Symantec, and dozens of other organisations committed to empowering people to use the Internet responsibly and safely.

Throughout October, we’ll be sharing top tips, how-to guides, and other useful resources to help you become more cyber aware at work, at home, and on the go. Follow us on FacebookLinkedIn, or Twitter and join the conversation by using the #CyberAware and #BeCyberSmart hashtags online.

BUI is an official Microsoft Partner in South Africa, and an award-winning leader in identity and security solutions.
