Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Cybersecurity Awareness Month, every October, is a collaboration between government and private industry to raise awareness about digital security and empower everyone to protect their personal data from digital forms of crime.

The month is dedicated to creating resources and communications for organizations to talk to their employees and customers about staying safe online.
Now in its 19th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact co-led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) with the overarching theme for 2022: See Yourself In Cyber

It’s easy to stay safe online

While most of the cybersecurity news articles are about massive data breaches and hackers, it can seem overwhelming and feel like you’re powerless against it. But Cybersecurity Awareness Month reminds everyone that there are all kinds of ways to keep your data protected. It can make a huge difference even by practicing the basics of cybersecurity.

This year, we are focusing on four key behaviors instead of weekly themes:

We encourage you to take a risk-based approach and focus on the behaviors most important to your organization.

Are insurance payouts taxable?

I often get asked this question, “Are insurance payouts taxable?”. Well that depends, usually no. If you have a home or auto claim, not at all. Life insurance is generally tax free as well. Accident and cancer claims are not taxable either. But, short term and long term disability are taxable. Hopefully that answers everyone’s question!
