Contrast Security Announces Commitment to Growing Global … – PR Newswire

Now in its 20th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is highlighting the growing importance of cybersecurity in our daily lives and encouraging individuals and businesses to take important steps to stay safe online

LOS ALTOS, Calif., Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Contrast Security (Contrast), the code security platform built for developers and trusted by security, today announced its commitment to cybersecurity education by participating in the 20th annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, tribal communities, and individuals committed to educating others on online safety.

“We are proud to again be a champion of this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative, which is co-managed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Cybersecurity Alliance,” said David Lindner, Chief Information Security Officer at Contrast Security. “I applaud all the individuals and organizations that come together to raise cybersecurity awareness globally. This initiative personally hits home, as each and all of us have the responsibility of being security-diligent in our online lives.”

From mobile to connected home devices, technology is deeply intertwined with our lives. And while the evolution of technology accelerates, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. For over 20 years, Cybersecurity Awareness Month has aimed to highlight emerging challenges in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward, actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.

Starting this year, the new theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is Secure Our World, with the main messaging revolving around four key cybersecurity best practices:

  1. Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.
  2. Turning on multifactor authentication on personal devices and business networks.
  3. Recognizing and reporting phishing — still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
  4. Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.
