How CyberSOC Africa is supporting Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Cybersecurity isn’t just the function of the IT department anymore. Regardless of your IT literacy, whether you are a B2B or B2C company, large or small, whatever your industry or service is, cybersecurity is everyone's business.
Cybersecurity isn’t just the function of the IT department anymore. Regardless of your IT literacy, whether you are a B2B or B2C company, large or small, whatever your industry or service is, cybersecurity is everyone’s business. It takes everyone to make the internet a safer place and at CyberSOC Africa, it’s something we take extremely seriously.
Since 2004, October has been celebrated as Cybersecurity Awareness Month, previously called National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. A month where the government, industry, and individuals work together to raise cybersecurity awareness nationwide. Highlighting the core principles behind cybersecurity and providing resources everyone needs to be safe and secure online.
At CyberSOC Africa, we help to protect thousands of organizations – helping them fight daily growing threats, incidents, and actual cybercrime. There’s a growing threat of cyberattacks, risks, and exploits, causing companies to lose millions of dollars every day. Additionally, there is a global shortage of cybersecurity experts, particularly in Africa. We protect businesses in Africa. With our technology, we can detect and stop malicious activity at the edge of a company’s network within seconds of an attack. With our Threat Detection and Threat Response services, our team of cyber experts not only offer our customers flexibility and agility in the detection phase but also empower them to respond swiftly to any threat or incident in a manner that minimizes or eliminates the negative impact of the cyber-attack/exploit on the organization.
Every day we put a stop to millions of attacks against financial institutions, government parastatals, eCommerce and Online retail platforms, and more. Just last year, we were ranked the No 1 Cybersecurity Provider in Africa in the Top MSSPs 2021 Edition. Recently, we launched the SOC360 solution - a robust threat protection plan for small businesses that includes defense, detection, and fallout mitigation. We are not backing down on our goal to provide unmatched cybersecurity services across Africa.
CyberSOC Africa is proud to be a Cybersecurity Month Awareness Champion. It is our pride to advocate for cyber readiness education, adherence to global cybersecurity standards, and strengthening cybersecurity practices throughout the security industry and ecosystem.”
This year’s campaign theme — “See Yourself in Cyber” — demonstrates that everyone is responsible for their own online behavior. The key focus is on the “people” part of cybersecurity, providing information and resources to help educate the public, and ensure all individuals and organizations make smart decisions whether on the job, at home, or at school – now and in the future.
This October, we’ll be taking part in Cybersecurity Awareness Month again by joining in with social media activities, helping to promote cybersecurity best practices, and creating a series of webinars and blog posts designed to raise awareness around this year’s challenges – keep an eye on our blog, Twitter (and the hashtags #SeeYourselfInCyber and #BeCyberSmart), LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook pages to find out more.
Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility, including yours. Please help spread the message this month. Together, let’s make the internet a safer place.
