National Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. And while it is critical to be vigilant about protecting your data year-round, now is an opportune time to review password security protocols. Many people think of hacking as an attack against a website to exploit vulnerability, but in reality, hacking can be as simple as asking for a password.

Eighty percent of security incidents are due to weak passwords, 1  and today’s hackers have realized that using social engineering to convince a user to give up his or her password may be the easiest way into an organization.

Our Customers Say

Jacquelynne Maloney at the Tonry agency has helped us immeasurably navigating the bonding process.  She took the time to get to know us and develop a complete picture of our company, our goals and objectives, our capabilities, our needs and the history of our company.  Her knowledge of the market allowed her early on to recognize what program would work for our company.  Other bonding agencies simply asked for a copy of our financial statement, balance sheet and work on hand.  They appeared to have no interested in whether we were making cupcakes or nuclear missiles.  Jacquelynne took the time to get to know us personally.  To her we were more than just our financial statement.
