Are you aware?

Written by Andrea Lee

October 6, 2021

I really hate awareness months. Like we’re all aware of bullying and we’re aware of obesity. In our field, being aware of cybersecurity runs in a similar vein. Nonetheless, this month serves as a good opportunity to bring up the topic with the masses. With over 65% of people reusing passwords across multiple sites, clearly any opportunity to reinforce the basics should be embraced with open arms.
