DLC Technology is proud to be a Champion for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

DLC announced its commitment to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), held 

annually in October, by signing up as a Champion and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy. NCSAM is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to this year’s NCSAM theme of ‘Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.’ which encourages everyone to #BeCyberSmart through cybersecurity best practices.

"Being focused on serving regulated businesses, such as healthcare, where the security of their data is critical to their operational success, DLC spends a lot of time, energy and expense on Cybersecurity enforcement.  The national effort put forth through NCSAM is critical to enhancing awareness and acknowledging the role that everyone plays in keeping our data secure." said Darren Crane, President, DLC Technology.

Now in its 16th year, NCSAM continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing all Americans with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. DLC Technology is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the  Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Cybersecurity is important to the success of all businesses and organizations. NCSA is proud to have such a strong and active community helping to encourage proactive behavior and prioritize cybersecurity in their organizations,” said Kelvin Coleman, executive director, NCSA.
