NASCIO Annual Conference 2014 in Nashville!

The conference was held at the Omni Hotel September 28 through October 1, 2014. We were proud to host the event in Nashville. Click to see highlights from the conference.


October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month!

National Cyber Security Awareness Month reflects our shared responsibility to secure cyberspace, and looks ahead by engaging all members of the community in an ongoing dialogue about emerging cybersecurity issues.

The federal Dept. of Homeland Security works year-round to increase cybersecurity awareness through its Stop.Think.Connect™ campaign, which encourages Americans to practice safe online behavior.

The campaign offers the following tips to stay safe online:

  • Set strong passwords and don't share them with anyone.
  • Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you post online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing information widely.
  • Be cautious about what you receive or read online — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
