#BeCyberSmart In Cybersecurity Awareness Month


Tetra Tech promotes cybersecurity at personal as well as business level.

Dailycsr.com – 25 October 2019 – The month of October is recognised as the “Cybersecurity Awareness Month”, whereby Tetra Tech proudly embodies the role of a “cybersecurity champion”. Moreover, the company also promotes “online safety and education initiative”.
Likewise, Tetra Tech informed:
“The cybersecurity and digital privacy of our employees and customers is vital to our operations. We invite you to #BeCyberSmart today and every day by joining us throughout October as we share proactive ways to stay safe online to protect yourself, your business, and your family”.
Unfortunately, we are seeing a rapid increment in cybercrimes although many are not aware of this. As per estimation, the global cybercrime could cost up to “$1.5 trillion” this year. There is no immunity from cybercriminals as victims range across “individuals of all ages to businesses of all sizes”.
Facing cybercrime comes with financial costs as one battles to recover from the data or identity breach. Business need to shell out to first locate and then repair the vulnerability in order to mitigate the damages caused by cybercrime.
On one side, more and more people are “getting better at recognising phishing attempts”, while on the other side cybercriminals too extending their “range of tools and techniques”. However, the good thing is that one can “learn more ways” of protecting oneself from “even the most sophisticated attempts”.
Tetra Tech emphasises on “personal accountability” besides stressing on the importance of being proactive in enhancing cybersecurity at home as well as at workplace. Here are some of the tips provided by Tetra Tech:
  • “Own IT: Understand more about the devices and applications you use every day to help keep you and your information secure
  • “Secure IT: Learn about security features available on the equipment and software you use to protect against cyberattacks
  • “Protect IT: Be familiar with the networks you connect to and routinely check privacy settings to help protect your privacy and reduce cybercrimes”
