Futurex Kicks Off National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2016
Futurex is thrilled to enter October, a month celebrating cyber security. Gartner’s 2016 forecast predicts that by 2018, 6 billion connected things will require support. As businesses become increasingly competitive based on their reliance on smart IoT devices, it will become increasingly crucial for businesses to secure their processes. A quick glance at any major news sources can serve as an immediate reminder that cyber security has never been more relevant. It is imperative that organizations implement proper safeguarding of their resources, including electronic records, customer data, and intellectual property. It is equally vital that individual actors (whether employees, volunteers, or members of the general public as a whole) operate in accordance with cyber security best practices to prevent malicious attacks.
Futurex seeks to engage local and international communities alike in a conversation on cyber security this month. Since education, as a preventative measure, is significantly more cost-effective than coping with breaches after the fact, Futurex is committed to advocating for cyber hygiene and ensuring our products comply with and exceed rigorous regulatory standards.
Looking to get involved? Here’s how:
- Reach out to one of our Solutions Architects, over the phone or by live chat. We can advise you on how the products and services best relate to your existing cryptographic infrastructure.

- Stay informed by following and interacting with Futurex on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. If you’re especially interested in the latest happenings, join our newsletter. We look forward to engaging with the community and hearing what measures your organization is taking towards creating safer online communities.
Most of all, remember that fostering productive and safe cyber security measures for your team or organization can go a long way. It is Futurex’s hope that cyber security remains a priority for all organizations for this month and those to follow.
