Founders First Capital Partners Announces Commitment to Growing Cybersecurity Success by Becoming a Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 Champion

Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 looks to empower everyday individuals and businesses to take cybersecurity steps by making cyber more accessible

SAN DIEGO, CA | October 1, 2022 – Founders First Capital Partners (Founders First) 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 “See yourself in Cyber.”

 

“Online scammers are getting better at this every day so we must stay vigilant in order to keep our information safe and secure,” said Majid Entezam, CTO, Founders First Capital Partners. “Following cybersecurity best practices makes it easy to stay safe online.”

From mobile 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 Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main focal areas revolve around four key fundamental cybersecurity best practices:

  1. Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
  2. Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.
  3. Enabling multi-factor authentication on personal devices and business networks.
  4. 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. Founders First Capital Partners 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.
