Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an initiative to encourage organizations and individuals to be more vigilant about cyberspace and personal accountability. With the theme: “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart,” end users are advised to take proactive steps to enhance their cybersecurity posture at home and in the workplace. Created in 2003 through a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Cyber Security Alliance, the key objective of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is to spread security training and awareness efforts by highlighting the importance of proper cybersecurity hygiene and resilience.
The sudden shift to remote work since the pandemic has left organizations and individuals unprepared. For example, a report revealed that although 43% of cyberattacks target small businesses, only 14% of these organizations have adequate cybersecurity measures to defend themselves. Therefore, the evolving threat landscape calls for robust security measures to protect against sophisticated cyberattacks.
GoldSky’s mission: Protecting clients in the dynamic cyber-threat landscape
It is no secret that small and medium-sized businesses are soft targets for cybercriminals. Cyberattacks are hard for these organizations, especially those with untrained staff, limited budgets, and poor cybersecurity measures. The best approach to this issue is to maintain a proactive security awareness culture that stresses the importance of cybersecurity. Therefore, hosting company-wide cybersecurity awareness training help to introduce proper security best practices that protect critical corporate assets.
Aligning with the core purpose of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, GoldSky Security has been working with various small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to increase their resilience against cyberattacks. With a mission to educate, transform, and protect clients from diverse cyber attack tactics, GoldSky Security has dedicated itself to making cyberspace safer for critical business operations.
Founded in 2016, GoldSky has worked relentlessly to educate and help SMBs stay one step ahead of adversaries in the shifting threat landscape. Guided by passionate leaders, our full-service cyber security solutions firm has helped countless partners identify their security vulnerabilities and develop defensive plans to achieve sustainable security resilience.

As a result, GoldSky is transforming the implementation and management of critical cybersecurity solutions for its clients, including regulatory compliance requirements.
A journey towards a sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem
In today’s world, everyone connected to the internet is vulnerable in one way or another. Hackers can exploit a single weak point to gain access to the central network of an organization and cause mayhem. Just as digital transformation is necessary for advancement, users must be aware of the dangers of cyberspace. Proper security protocols and incident response plans must be in place to recover from security incidents and data breaches.
Driven by the desire to elevate cybersecurity conditions for SMBs, GoldSky Security offers affordable security solutions ranging from security governance to privacy compliance. In addition, with the Chief Information Security Officers-as-a-Service (CSOaaS) service offering, an organization can leverage the benefits provided by world-class security thought leadership for both on-premise and cloud-based environments.
Aiming to create a sustainable cybersecurity ecosystem, GoldSky Security does more than solve cybersecurity issues—we educate and help organizations learn the ropes of cybersecurity. In addition to fixing the security gaps, this new-age cybersecurity solution improves corporate security while maintaining existing cyber-resilient controls.
Cyberattacks will not slow down anytime soon—instead, they will increase as digitalization increases worldwide. The advent of smart devices and internet connectivity creates new ways for hackers and cybercriminals to access sensitive data. The easiest way to prevent this is to increase awareness and implement proper security protocols. Therefore, it is high time for SMBs to prioritize and strengthen their cybersecurity structure to keep themselves safe from cyberattacks.
As cybersecurity awareness month highlights the importance of cyber awareness, proper cyber hygiene, and sustainable resilience, it is pivotal for organizations to incorporate strategic cybersecurity solutions aligned with their business goals. While GoldSky’s mission remains to educate, transform, and protect clients’ critical infrastructure, our security solutions ensure that security does not become an impediment to the daily business operation of your organization.
