Why Cybersecurity?

Internet-based devices are present in every aspect of our lives: at home, school, work, and on the go. Constant connection provides opportunities for innovation and modernization. Now, as never before, we use technology to connect with others, make our jobs easier, pay bills, get event tickets, and more. And thanks to modern technology, “smart” devices give us remote access to make life easier, such as allowing us to unlock doors, turn on lights, or turn up the heat using our phones. 

These modern conveniences also bring a greater threat of information compromise. Each of us plays a critical role in supporting cybersecurity through good practices and awareness.
