Softdocs Champions Cybersecurity Month 2022

Softdocs Champions Cybersecurity Month 2022

October is Cybersecurity Month and we will be sharing tips, blogs, and webinars on how everyone, no matter their role, can contribute to Cyber Safety.

Regularly topping the list of pressing concerns for IT professionals in education, cybersecurity remains a topic of high importance for institutions seeking to remain conscientious stewards of student, employee, and other institutional data. Balancing the efficient and secure capture, storage, and distribution of a veritable wealth of information with the growing accessibility demands of administrators, faculty, and students is no easy task—but we can make it an easier one.


Softodocs is committed to Cybersecurity and has joined with the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) to become a Cybersecurity Champion.
