Security Tips from Colorado’s New CISO

Did you know that 99% of all cyberattacks require someone to open a file, click a link or carry out some other action?

Scammers are successful because none of us is perfect and neither is any of the technology we use. But when we do our part to stay educated and use best practices, we greatly improve our ability to protect our own information and any information we access at work from falling into the wrong hands.

“The weakest link is always ourselves,” says Ray Yepes, state Chief Information Security Officer. “We all make mistakes, so a key to security is constant education.”
