Emtec Joins National Cyber Security Awareness Month Initiative to Promote Awareness for Online Safety and Privacy
Jacksonville, FL, October 1, 2019 - Emtec, Inc., an IT consultancy, today announced its commitment to National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), held annually in October, by signing up as a Champion and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy. NCSAM is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to this year’s NCSAM theme of ‘Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.’ which encourages everyone to #BeCyberSmart through cyber security best practices.
“Emtec is proud to be part of this national initiative which encourages everyone to be diligent in protecting both their personal as well as company information,” said Robert Newborg, CIO, Emtec. “Our team continues to make substantial investments in the latest cyber security technologies from partners like Digital Defense and Cybraics to extend and deepen our cyber security efforts to protect our employees, clients and firm’s critical infrastructure and assets. This program is a perfect extension of our efforts.”
“With the vast increase in security incidents over recent months, cyber security is more critical now than ever before,” said Douglas Goodall, managing director of Emtec’s Infrastructure Services division. “This awareness initiative is in perfect alignment with our mission to help our clients strengthen their security operations against these forms of enterprise risk via our suite of managed cyber security services.”
Now in its 16th year, NCSAM continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing all Americans with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. This online safety awareness and education initiative is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
“Cyber security is important to the success of all businesses and organizations. NCSA is proud to have such a strong and active community helping to encourage proactive behavior and prioritize cyber security in their organizations,” said Kelvin Coleman, executive director, NCSA.
