Now in its 20th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2023 is highlighting the growing importance of cybersecurity in our daily lives and encouraging individuals and businesses to take important cybersecurity steps to stay safe online
HACKENSACK, NJ (Sept. 27, 2023) — Paperclip, Inc. (OTCMKTS:PCPJ), an innovative data security and content management company, today announced its commitment to cybersecurity education by participating in the 20th Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Paperclip is the creator of SAFE®, the only always-encrypted data security platform that works at the speed of business.
Whereas traditional solutions decrypt data to support search or query functions, Paperclip SAFE enables search upon fully encrypted data without ever decrypting. Built on a foundation of Zero Trust, Paperclip’s patented technology goes beyond best-in-class encryption for another layer of critical protection.
Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, tribal communities, and individuals committed to educating others on the benefits of actionable cyber-safety techniques.
“Cybersecurity Awareness Month is the perfect time for organizations to consider whether their current data security programs are keeping up with the changing privacy, security and trust landscape,” said Chad Walter, CRO for Paperclip SAFE. “Searchable encryption is innovating the future of data privacy, security, and consumer trust. SAFE is paving the way for companies to fully encrypt the sensitive data that drives their business success. If your data is not always encrypted, it’s not always secure.”
From mobile to connected home devices, technology is deeply intertwined within our lives. And while the evolution of technology accelerates, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. For 20 Octobers and counting, Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.
Starting this year, the new theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is Secure Our World, with the main messaging revolving around four key cybersecurity best practices:
- Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.
- Turning on multifactor authentication on personal devices and business networks.
- Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
- Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum upon the foundation of providing everyone with the basic tools and training they need to stay safer and more secure online. Paperclip is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-managed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Cybersecurity Alliance.
Paperclip will be sharing actionable cybersecurity content throughout the month of October. Its content will also be featured in Dark Reading and Security Week later this month. Follow on LinkedIn or visit the website to learn more.
