Washington, D.C.  As October marks Cyber Security Awareness Month, the App Security Project continues to remind consumers of the important security and privacy protections to ensure Americans’ safety online.

Patrick Hedger, ASP Executive Director, offered the following comment:

“Cyber Security Awareness Month is the perfect reminder for both policymakers at both the state and federal level as well as folks at home to take stock of the current proposed policies that could put their devices at risk. From last year’s hack of the Colonial Pipeline to the ongoing cyberattacks associated with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the threats are not hypothetical.

“In recent months, misguided proposals to reshape the tech sector have been introduced that would result in weaker security on individuals’ devices and increase the chances of malware attacks from nefarious basement dwellers all the way up to hostile state actors.

“Throughout the month of October, the App Security Project is looking forward to educating consumers about current cyber security concerns and highlighting the guardrails in place that continue to protect individuals online.”
