September is National Preparedness Month. Historically, this month has been promoted to bring focus to readiness for natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding. As we head into the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, wildfires and flash flooding have captured the headlines.
In today’s threat landscape, any financial institution (FI) likely has a higher probability of a cyber event than a naturally occurring disaster – so it’s no coincidence that October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. As responsible C-Suite and IT representatives, we recognize our responsibility to our FI and our customers to be prepared for both!
