National Cyber Security

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is the perfect time of year for individuals, businesses, and other organizations to reflect on the universe of cyber threats and to do their part to protect their networks, their devices, and their data from those threats. Created as a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its public and private partners, including the National Cyber Security Alliance, the goal of NCSAM is to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and individual cyber hygiene

Our goal is to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats, promote cybersecurity among citizens and organizations; and provide resources to protect themselves online, through education and sharing of best practices. The first step to combatting increasingly complex cyber challenges and advanced adversaries is awareness.

Beratung is proud to support National Cyber Security Awareness Month through partnerships, events, and insight. Remember, The Internet is a shared resource and securing it is Our Shared Responsibility. To learn more about how you can get involved, and stay secure – explore our offerings below.

The contractor’s approach was to swap out telescopes, take them away and then switch them back again once ready. But it took too long, amplifying security concerns.
