ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Oct. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a collaborate effort between government and industry to educate the American public to the importance of cybersecurity. In today’s digital world, it is important for the public to understand that cybersecurity involves more than just businesses and national security interests. The general public’s private information is vulnerable as well, through the use of computers, cell phones, and the Internet of Things. The number of cybersecurity hacking incidents and threats to personal and business data is increasing every year. This year’s theme is Own IT. Secure IT. Protect It. #BeCyberSmart.
Coastline College is designated by the Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense for Two-Year Colleges (CAE2Y).
