Futurex Serves as a Champion for National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2016
BULVERDE, Texas – Futurex has been named a Champion for the 13th annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2016. This October marks the start of NCSAM 2016, a celebration resulting from the collaboration between government and industry organizations to help all communities stay safe and secure online. More specifically, NCSAM is managed by leadership from the Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Alliance. NCSAM Champions represent the various organizations of all sizes who are working together to promote a trusted Internet.
This year, Futurex is again joining the esteemed Tier 1 companies, non-profits, and educational institutions which support these important efforts. Futurex recognizes that the security of an entire system is only as strong as its weakest link, and responsibility falls on each individual member to do their part. This year’s NCSAM’s theme is “Our Shared Responsibility”, emphasizing the need for cooperative actions to safeguard data. Futurex is excited to join the conversation, as protecting data as at the heart of Futurex’s corporate focus. For over 35 years, Futurex has remained committed to delivering best-in-class products and solutions for today’s most complex security challenges.
Adam Cason, Futurex Director of Product Marketing, recognizes the importance of this year’s theme. “As cyberattacks continue to increase in scope and level of sophistication, equipping our end users, and the public at large, with tools to protect themselves will remain an important part of our mission. We are pleased to once again offer our support to the ideals promoted by National Cyber Security Awareness Month,” said Cason in regard to the kickoff of NCSAM 2016.
