October, The Official Cyber Security Awareness Month




We are entering the last quarter of 2021 for Cyber Security Awareness Training. This years’ Cyber Security Challenges were additional opportunities to fine-tune our Cyber Security Culture. With continuous phishing emails, text messages and phone calls, we remained clear of company data breaches and remained true to our policies regarding protecting our customers’ networks as we continue to meet and exceed their cyber requirements.


October is Cyber Security Awareness Month. Communicate, Communicate, Communicate. Lone Star Communications is rapidly growing with many new faces at our various regions. In many cases, cyber criminals’ successes are built around tricking new employees into clicking and entering personal information. As we proceed into the fall holiday months, let’s continue to be aware of the popular fake gift card requests by criminals imitating our executives; simply completely delete this email from Outlook by pressing “SHIFT + DELETE.” Do not let ANY fake emails reside in your deleted or trash folder. These emails could potentially have scripts or coding that may execute and cause vulnerabilities.


Thank you for your continued support as we work together to improve our cyber security posture. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at bbanks@lonestarcom.com .
