Tricks or Treats?
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Take the quiz in our final blog to review the basics from the month!

As October draws to a close, I hope that our blogs and other messaging to increase awareness of cyber security best practices and training has given you a chance to reflect on ways to improve EUCOM’s, and you and your family’s, security posture. The network is a system that gets to the core of information, and we're all responsible for protecting that information from adversaries who threaten our operations, missions, and put our family’s well-being and our personal identity at risk.
