A message from State Auditor Pat McCarthy: See yourself in cyber

Sep 28, 2022

Whether you work for a local government that provides frontline emergency services or an agency that handles sensitive information like personal or financial records, you have an important role in cybersecurity.

That is why the State Auditor's Office will be joining in the theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, “See yourself in cyber.” While cybersecurity can be technical and complex, much of it comes down to people and the choices they make.

When you use strong passwords or recognize and report phishing attempts, you are protecting the public's data and security. To that end, we'll be sharing tips and new information, and pointing to existing resources that can help you stay cyber-safe. In keeping with this year's theme, we'll be exploring specific ways that you can keep your government's data safe and secure, whether you're working from your office or your home.

As always, you can access helpful information on our #BeCyberSmart page. It's up to all of us to do our part and be cyber-smart!
