Cyber Security Month
The Port of Long Beach, like many organizations, relies heavily on information technology to get business done. As part of acknowledging the importance of this reliance, the Port participates in an annual outreach program powered by the National Cyber Security Alliance — National Cyber Security Awareness Month. During October the Port sends out messages to trade partners, Port staff, and other related government agencies.
This year’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month’s theme is Our Shared Responsibility — the Port hears this call and is sharing the following links of great information about cyber security, emerging threats and training.
