Miami Lakes, FL (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
InfoSight Inc. provider of Managed Security, IT Compliance and Vulnerability Management services for regulated industries, is recognized as a Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2014.
With cyber-attacks on the rise, it's important that Internet users better understand how to protect their sensitive information online, whether they are at work or at home. The need for cyber security awareness has grown every year. InfoSight has demonstrated their commitment to cyber security awareness by again becoming a National Cyber Security Awareness Month Champion.
Cyber Threats are Real
“In today's environment, cybersecurity and online safety is everyone's responsibility,” said Tom Garcia CEO of InfoSight Inc.” Cyber risks are real; cybercriminals will continue to challenge our cybersecurity and privacy. If we all do our part to educate others and implement stronger cybersecurity practices, we can become a safer cyber society.”
Security Awareness and Cybersecurity Website
In an effort to help businesses and consumers learn how to be safer and more secure online, InfoSight developed MySecurityAwareness.com a website providing free articles, videos, games and tools. In addition, the site offers password-protected access to a plethora of educational materials which organizations are able to use in a variety of ways to educate their staff and their customers.
“Financial institutions know that educating their customers is something the FFIEC requires them to do,” said Garcia. “We help deliver an effective and quality program to institutions that don’t have the staff or time to develop, implement or manage a customer security awareness program. By coordinating the implementation efforts with the banks’ internal resources, they are free to concentrate on other priorities.”
InfoSight also offers a unique banking and credit union specific learning management system (LMS) to help institutions reduce the cost of delivering, tracking and reporting on training requirements for compliance purposes. Unlike other LMS’s currently on the market, InfoSight’s cybersecurity awareness training portal is easy to use, easy to manage, and fully customizable. Institutions enjoy its Digital Policy Acceptance and Tracking module and its complete Online Document Library often referring to it as a comprehensive “all-in-one” training solution.
Programs like InfoSight’s security awareness website and on-demand training portal assist the efforts led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Department of Homeland Security, NCSAM to grow and reach consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions and young people across the nation and internationally. 2014 marks the 11th year of NCSAM.
Celebrated every October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. As an official Champion, InfoSight recognizes its commitment to cybersecurity and online safety.
"The Champion Program is a vital part of making National Cyber Security Awareness Month a success each year,” said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance. “We are thankful to our 2014 Champion organizations for their support and commitment to our shared responsibility of promoting cyber security and online safety awareness."
