For more information, review Order 2023-32 here.

- Review this summary of current threats on what to watch for when interacting with technology.
- Assess your security status with this Cyber Threat Quiz!
- Understand the Importance of Cyber Training.
- Learn what small and medium businesses can do today.
Finding Our Way Through Chaos
From Courtney Risk:
I find myself in a particularly stressful season and I know many of you are in the same boat...or may be joining me as we head into the holiday season. While I know these seasons come and go, it is good to have a reminder of this fact—and of the skills that can help us navigate these seasons successfully. Stacy Brookman provides 5 Ways to Stay Calm When Your Life is in Serious Chaos to help us better navigate these stressful seasons. If you find you cannot navigate life’s stresses alone, remember that KYLAP is available to help.
