FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- National Cyber Security Awareness Month, celebrated each October since 2004, is a global initiative among businesses, government agencies, associations, schools, and individuals to promote online security awareness.
"We work in a world that is increasingly vulnerable to data loss and theft, where black market prices—especially for healthcare data—make online theft very lucrative for cybercriminals. It is important to protect sensitive information on all devices at all times," said Scott Fluegge, president and general manager of JDL Technologies. "As a managed services provider supporting clients across the country, we see unnecessary risks taken by computer users every day. Robust, layered network security is a critical component of our program."
An official Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, JDL Technologies is committed to reinforcing cybersecurity and online safety best practices for clients, employees and other stakeholders. The company provides information technology services to commercial enterprises and SMBs as well as education and healthcare. HIPAA FastTrack, a JDL Cloud service focused on securing protected health information, won a 2016 Information Security Award for Innovation in Compliance.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month is coordinated by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Department of Homeland Security, and is a collaboration between government and industry to ensure everyone has the resources necessary to stay safer and more secure online.
"The Champion Program is a vital part of making National Cyber Security Awareness Month a success each year," said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance. "We are thankful to our 2016 Champion organizations for their support and commitment to our shared responsibility of promoting cybersecurity and online safety awareness."
