October 03, 2022 — Integrity Technology Solutions today announced that it has signed on as Champion for Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022.
Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices.
The Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘It’s easy to stay safe online.’
“Security awareness training and creating a culture of awareness are critical components of an effective cybersecurity strategy for businesses,” said Chad Geiser, director of strategic partnerships at Integrity Technology Solutions. “Most breaches can be attributed to human error, so investing in a security awareness program provides great value.”
From mobile to connected home devices, technology is becoming more intertwined with our lives every day.
And while the evolution of technology is moving at the speed of sound, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.

Integrity Technology Solutions is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
