October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Held every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.
The Business & IT Security practice at AAFCPAs has published the following insights recently to outline the most common vulnerabilities and how to mitigate risks:

- Configuration & Application Vulnerabilities in Cyber & IT Security – The most common vulnerabilities are poor configurations and outdated/unpatched systems or applications.
- Eye on Cyber: A Day in the Life of an Ethical Hacker – Learn about the covert tricks and techniques used by AAFCPAs’ Certified Ethical Hacker.
