October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

It’s Time to ACT.

Throughout October, the NETSCOUT team will be joining the conversation around Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Along with the United States Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, and security leaders around the globe, we’ll be sharing resources and expertise on how organizations can improve their cyber defenses, keep up with the latest threat landscape and newest technologies.

Each week, we’ll unveil new content below. And all month long, you can join the conversation on social media, where we’ll teach you to ACT (Adapt, Control, Thrive).
