September is National Preparedness Month, which promotes family and community disaster planning. This year’s theme is “Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today.” The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) recommends users and administrators use this month as an opportunity to asses cybersecurity preparedness for cyber-related events, such as identity theft, ransomware infection, or a data breach.
