ePlus Kicks Off National Cyber Security Awareness Month with Launch of ePlus CyberSmart Campaign

HERNDON, VA – September 30,  2019 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUSnews) today announced the launch of ePlus CyberSmart, an educational campaign spanning the month of October that will provide best practices and thought leadership around organizational cyber security considerations.


ePlus CyberSmart will coincide with National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security.


As an industry leader, ePlus will develop and distribute free informational resources, including blog posts, podcasts and more, to impart expertise, tips, tricks, best practices and considerations around various elements of organizational cyber security. Contributed by various thought leaders, the content will range from general education to more technical expertise, all provided in consumable format.


“The first step to successfully defending against cyber threats is awareness,” said Lee Waskevich, Vice President, Security Solutions at ePlus. “The ePlus CyberSmart campaign will provide educational information around multiple facets of cyber security that organizations should be considering to help strengthen their security posture. A thorough and well-rounded organizational security strategy requires multiple elements working together to achieve desired outcomes, and our campaign will provide information around four different areas: stopping disruptive cyber threats, reducing your attack surface, securing multi-cloud workloads and optimizing your defenses through proactive planning.”


NCSAM 2019 will emphasize personal accountability and stress the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cyber security at home and in the workplace. As such, the first week of the ePlus CyberSmart campaign will provide information focusing on how organizations can stop disruptive cyber threats through various tactics including user awareness training, team drills, and proper incident response.


Campaign elements will be available on www.eplus.com/cybersmart, beginning October 1, 2019.
