Critical Start Kicks Off Cybersecurity Awareness Month

PLANO, TX – October 1, 2019 – Coinciding with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019, we want to remind organizations about the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity – Critical Start, a leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, announced its support of October’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) with a campaign to educate organizations on the importance of leaving nothing to chance.

A collaborative effort between government and industry, NCSAM was created to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. This year’s theme, “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.” serves as a call to action to organizations on the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity practices.

Critical Start’s campaign leverages the messages conveyed by the national campaign to offer tips and best practices throughout the month of October. Through the Critical Start blog, social media channels and more, the company will share best practices including:

Own IT. Understand your digital profile.
Knowing your threat landscape is key in understanding your digital profile. From conducting risk assessments to evaluating security tool inventories, Critical Start will offer tips to help assess your threat landscape.

Secure IT. Secure your digital profile.
The key to effective cybersecurity is to quickly stop an attack before it becomes a breach. Leveraging the right tools and technologies are critical in stopping breaches and securing your digital profile. Critical Start will explore these tools, and how they work in securing an organization and preventing attacks.

PROTECT IT. Maintain your digital profile.
Incorporating penetration testing services is the best way to evaluate your security posture and determine how exposed your systems, services, and data are to malicious threat actors on an ongoing basis. Critical Start’s penetration testing team, will share stories from the front lines on what they’re seeing, and how organizations can use that information to protect their own infrastructure.

“As the volume of attacks continues to increase, the goal for any organization should be to stop an attack from becoming a breach,” said Rob Davis, CEO, Critical Start. “However, there are ways to prevent breaches, and we look forward to sharing those insights as part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.”
