Week 4: National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Week Four of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is about safeguarding the nation’s critical infrastructure. Online purchases connect you to the Financial Services Sector. Each phone call, text, and email is enabled through the Communication Sector. Our day-to-day life depends on the country’s 16 sectors of critical infrastructure, and a disruption could have significant consequences for our nation. As so many of these systems are interconnected with our lives, protecting your information and accounts is one way to help protect our nation’s critical infrastructure.
