In the wake of Facebook’s massive data breach affecting over 50 million people, there is no better time to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy. That is why CoNetrix, a technology and software company based in Lubbock, is kicking off National Cybersecurity Awareness Month by offering a free cybersecurity awareness training to the public.
The complimentary webinar will educate the viewers on how to keep data and privacy secure when browsing online, viewing social media, making online purchases, or any other online activity that could expose private information.
“We are a strong supporter of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month,” commented Russ Horn, President of CoNetrix. “We wanted to participate by providing education on how people can take simple steps to protect themselves from threats in today’s digital world.”
As a Champion of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2018, CoNetrix joins a global effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy.
