Building on its annual success, Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 is set to highlight the growing importance of cybersecurity in our daily lives and to empower individuals and businesses to take action to secure their data

TALLAHASSEE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / September 29, 2022 / Ruvos today announced that it has signed on as Champion for Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022. Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world's foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘It's easy to stay safe online.'

"As one of the country's leading public health informatics companies, cybersecurity is the foundation of all we do at Ruvos. Our company is trusted to move sensitive health and public health data for government agencies and healthcare organizations across the globe-maintaining privacy and security is our top priority. We have invested continually over the last 18 years in training and education on best practices to ensure our partners' data moves quickly and securely. It is a 24/7/365 challenge but also an opportunity to to help healthcare organizations across the globe protect data that could be lifesaving," said Eddie Gonzalez Loumiet, CEO of Ruvos.

From mobile to remote work and learning to connected home devices, technology is becoming more intertwined with our lives every day. And while the evolution of technology is moving at the speed of sound, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist 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.

This year, the main focal areas of Cybersecurity Awareness Month anchor on four key fundamental cybersecurity best practices: Recognizing and reporting phishing - still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today. Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use. Enabling multi-factor authentication on personal devices and business networks. Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.

Now in its 19th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Ruvos is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security .
