Happy Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Since 2004, every October in the United States is Cybersecurity Awareness Month (and Fire Safety Month, too – test your smoke alarms!). So often, we are simply reacting to breaches, threats, and audit findings, but we don’t often stop to think about the proactive side to security. Having a month to do that is wonderful!
Join me as I do something I’ve never done before: stream live! Four live webcasts on YouTube Live over the next four weeks, along with four blog posts that correlate with the themes of each week. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance in the United States, but since VMware is a global company, and cybersecurity knows no boundaries (bad actors attack everyone, everywhere!), I’ve scheduled two of the live streams to be convenient to my EMEA and APAC friends.
Interested in joining me? You should, it’ll be fun! I’ll talk for 20 minutes about the topic and then take questions for the rest of the hour (or as long as you have them).
Download an .ics/iCal file for all the events (heads up: you might have to drag them into your main calendar to save them, they’re every Thursday in October beginning on the 8th) or choose the individual ones below to save the date!
