“We invite everyone to share this video with colleagues and family members and convey some well-proven, effective practices that will enable them to safely and effectively interact online and play their part in helping secure cyberspace,” says Cummins.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2011
nCircle, the leader in security and compliance auditing solutions and National Cyber Security Awareness Month Champion, today announced the release of a new video in its on-demand series which offers instruction for the general public and organizations’ employees on how to implement leading and easy-to-use security best practices and tips.
The video, presented by Andrew Storms, CISSP, nCircle’s director of security operations, includes instruction that will benefit a broad range of publics including any organization needing to further educate its employees on some of the steps they need to take to safeguard themselves while online and when utilizing social networking and email tools. This 7-minute video, “Five Ways Internet Users Can Stay Protected Online” can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX5f-P8kwlc.
Storms is a well-known and highly respected security specialist who, in addition to his daily duties of defining and enforcing security compliance at nCircle, is often sought out by international media outlets for his analysis of and commentary on cybersecurity breaches and issues. He has appeared on CNBC and has been quoted extensively in the New York Times, Forbes magazine and other publications. He is also a member of InfraGard, a partnership between the FBI and the private sector, and a graduate of the FBI Citizens’ Academy.
“The reason that Andrew Storms is so effective, both as a security practitioner and as a speaker, is that he is able to take complex, technical issues and present them in a way whereby the public, at all levels of technical aptitude, can understand and apply his lessons immediately and consistently,” explains Keren Cummins, nCircle’s director of federal programs. “We invite everyone—whether they work at a government agency, small businesses or are self-employed—to share this brief video with colleagues and family members and convey some well-proven, effective practices that will enable them to safely and effectively interact online and play their part in helping secure cyberspace.”
National Cyber Security Awareness Month, celebrated annually during October since 2004, will focus this year on the theme: “Our Shared Responsibility.” According to DHS officials, cyber threats now represent the greatest challenge to national and economic security, and employees of government agencies and private sector companies can be either the first line of defense or the weakest link in their organization’s security posture—depending on how well they’re educated in cyber security.
“Navigating the information highway has become especially difficult in recent years as there are now hazards and perils at every turn—with no road signs showing users what’s ahead or the right way to turn,” Storms explains. “My hope is that this video will provide the navigation tools that organizations, their employees and the general public needs in order to better recognize the many risks out there and to always make the right choices.”
