Cybersecurity Awareness Month Continues With Additional Commentary From An Industry Expert

October marks National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), a significant initiative launched in 2004 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance. The goal is to have a month dedicated to reinforcing the importance of safeguarding our online presence. It began as an American effort, but the message resonated far and wide. Today, numerous countries around the globe have embraced the cause, underscoring that cyber threats don’t recognize borders. It’s a collective call to action, urging individuals and organizations to prioritize online safety, no matter where they’re located. It’s truly a global commitment to cyber resilience.

Following up on this post and this post , I have more commentary on this important initiative from Anurag Gurtu, CPO, StrikeReady:

The healthcare supply chain is a complex ecosystem that plays a critical role in delivering essential medical services. However, it has become an attractive target for cyber threat actors seeking to disrupt operations and steal sensitive data. To safeguard the healthcare supply chain, organizations must implement comprehensive cybersecurity measures. This includes conducting thorough risk assessments, identifying potential vulnerabilities, and implementing robust security protocols throughout the supply chain network. Collaboration with suppliers, third-party vendors, and partners is essential to ensure the security of upstream elements. By strengthening cybersecurity within the healthcare supply chain, organizations can enhance resilience and protect the continuity of healthcare services.
