Every year, the Department of Homeland Security has a campaign to raise awareness about the significance of cybersecurity. The essential systems that support our daily lives – financial institutions, electricity, water resources and transportation – all depend on the Internet. Because of this, building resilience in critical infrastructure is vital to our local and national security. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between government and industry. Working together creates resources for all Americans to be safer and more secure online. In addition, the month focuses on increasing the nation’s resiliency to cyber-threats.
Creating a culture of cybersecurity is critical for all organizations ‒ not just government agencies. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. There are two key points to understand:
First, personal information is at risk for everyone. This includes large and small businesses, academic institutions, and nonprofit organizations.
Second, from the entry-level assistant to the Board of Directors, it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain the safety of a company’s network.

For 15 years, Trofholz Technologies has specialized in providing information security for government and military facilities. This experience demonstrates our understanding of the strict guidelines and national standards that are required. Because we recognize the importance of protecting all systems, we provide the same level of cybersecurity service to our commercial customers as we do our Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security customers.
We understand the importance of protecting the underlying infrastructure from both physical and cyber threats. Cyberspace is the new generation of war that we must defend against. Cybersecurity, also known as IT Security, is part of Information Security, which protects hardware, software, and information on them. With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), this effort has expanded. Significantly, it includes internet privacy on private data networks, and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other related wireless networks. When reviewing a system, experts must assess each aspect, and combine that research with a client’s unique needs to build a quality system that will protect your essential information and assets.
