What is Cybersecurity COMMUNITY Month?

As you, no doubt, know October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It's a time of intense cybersecurity marketing. We believe defenders are plenty aware of the risks. At SafeGuard Cyber we're on a mission to secure human connections, so we decided to do something different. 
This month, we want to give back the community.
  • Cyber story time to inspire the next generation of defenders!

  • A former FBI Cyber Division agent will join us to help family and friends stay cyber safe.

  • A national security recruiter will provide job search best practices to help cyber newcomers.

  • And we're releasing weekly episodes of our award-winning First Watch podcast, with new industry insights and views.

We hope you can join us in celebrating this community. The future of cybersecurity is bright!
