The Importance of Protection

Posted by Griffin Ball on Oct 9, 2020 2:45:00 PM
This was the first full week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)!

As per cisa.gov, this week's topic is “If You Connect It, Protect It.” While networks, like the internet, are amazing tools that allow us to connect devices and share information between them, they are also security risks as the other devices you connect to can be malicious. Don't panic! With a bit of awareness and a few tools, it's easy keep your devices safe.

If a device is connected to a network, it needs antivirus software to monitor for malicious activity and to remove the sneaky software. Lighthouse IT Solutions recommends Sophos for all your devices, whether they are on your home or business network. For devices on your home network you can find the free or premium version for Sophos Home here.
