October 2022: Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Service Desk Cost Savings, & Assessing EMR Performance

#SeeYourselfInCyber Theme for October Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the Cybersecurity and we’re joining the Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to encouraging everyone to #seeyourselfincyber and adopt these simple yet effective personal cyber hygiene strategies to reduce cyber risk for you and your company:

1. Think Before You Click:Recognize and Report Phishing: If a link looks a little off, think before you click. It could be an attempt to get sensitive information or install malware.

2. Update Your Software: Don’t delay – if you see a software update notification, act promptly. Better yet, turn on automatic updates.

3. Use Strong Passwords: Use passwords that are long, unique, and randomly generated. Use password managers to generate and remember different, complex passwords for each of your accounts. A password manager will encrypt passwords securing them for you!

4. Enable Multi-Factor Authentication: You need more than a password to protect your online accounts, and enabling MFA makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.
