Cyber Security Awareness Month: What to Expect

October is only a few days away, and for those of us in cyber security that means it is time again for Cyber Security Awareness Month. President Obama first designated October as Cyber Security Awareness Month, when he announced that “cyber threats post one of the gravest national security dangers the United States faces.”

At Orion, we want to make sure that you are prepared. So this October, check back regularly as we provide you with resources to help you stay informed about how you can remain secure in an ever increasingly digital world.
