As we previously announced, October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Couch White, LLP is proud to share messages and weekly themes of the importance of staying safe online. The theme of Week 1 is “Be Cyber Smart.” Proper cyber hygiene requires diligence at all levels of an organization, from front-line employees to senior leadership. Consider the analogy to dental hygiene. Just as our teeth require daily brushing and flossing, as well as periodic visits to the dentist, cyber hygiene requires both daily and periodic maintenance.
