FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 25, 2015
DENVER, Colo.—National Cybersecurity Awareness Month creates awareness about hackers and their techniques and lets people know how they can protect themselves. The Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) has recently updated its website with more information to educate the public about cybersecurity threats.
On average, there are more than 1.5 million victims of cybercrime across the globe every day, and most of them could have avoided the attack if they were more educated on cybersecurity. Here in Colorado, the Governor’s Office of Information Technology defends against approximately 8.4 million cybersecurity events each day. We believe it is imperative that our residents are armed with the tools they need to protect themselves.

Find OIT online at colorado.gov/oit, on the #StateofCO IT blog, and on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
