PHOENIX – March 22, 2021 – PRLog — Redd Queen Strategy Group, a boutique fractional CMO consultancy, announced joining the annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month, as a 2021 Champion. The Champions Program is a collaborative effort between individuals and businesses committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘Do Your Part, #BeCyberSmart.’
“Information is currency, and the theft of that information is the one issue that concerns every person and organization. It is our collective duty to share education and resources, and we’re proud to be a champion for our third year,” said Redd Queen CEO and founder, Robin Thompson.
Connected devices have been woven into society as necessary tools for our daily lives. Despite major advances in technology, recent events have shown us how quickly our lives and businesses can be disrupted when cybercriminals use technology to do damage.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month sheds light on security vulnerabilities while offering actionable guidance. This year, each week of Cybersecurity Awareness Month will focus on the following cybersecurity awareness topics:
- Understanding and implementing basic cyber hygiene
- Recognizing and reporting phishing attempts
- Promoting cybersecurity as a career!
- “Secure by Design” — consider cybersecurity when purchasing internet-connected devices.
If everyone does their part – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
Now in its 18th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact. Redd Queen Strategy Group is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Despite often being overlooked in terms of hype, phishing has been a mainstay in the cybersecurity threat landscape for decades. In fact, 43 percent of cyberattacks in 2020 featured phishing or pre-texting, while 74 percent of US organizations experienced a successful phishing attack last year alone. That means that phishing is one of the most dangerous “action varieties” to an organization’s cybersecurity health. As a result, the need for proper anti-phishing hygiene and best practices is an absolute must.
