CoNetrix Champions 2020 National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

CoNetrix, a leading provider of information security and technology services, announces its participation in National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2020. By becoming a champion, CoNetrix joins the national campaign to help businesses stay safer and more secure online.

A multi-layered and far-reaching campaign held annually in October, NCSAM was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure all digital citizens have the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online while also protecting their personal information. As an official Champion, CoNetrix reinforces their commitment to cybersecurity, online safety, and privacy.

"We enjoy being a part of this proactive movement," states Russ Horn, President for CoNetrix. "It is always our goal to help companies improve their security posture."

As a part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, CoNetrix is making available several resources to help security-conscious companies be more proactive with their security programs.
