October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise understanding nationally and internationally. This year’s theme is “See Yourself in Cyber” – and all month long, Regions will be providing tips, information and resources on how you can stay cyber aware to make smart decisions that keep you, your family and your community safe online.
In today’s tech-driven world, we are more connected than ever – through our smartphones, tablets, and computers. That means our world is becoming increasingly dependent on cybersecurity.
As Ivana Cojbasic, Chief Information Security Officer at Regions, points out “We are all now in cyber. It does not matter if we have a career in cybersecurity or not, everyone is responsible for their own online behavior.”
In the videos below, Cojbasic answers a few questions and share more about her role as a Chief Information Security Officer.
