Tandem, developer of the leading information security and compliance management platform for financial institutions, announces its participation in National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2020. By becoming a champion, Tandem joins the national campaign to help businesses stay safer and more secure online.

A multi-layered and far-reaching campaign held annually in October, NCSAM was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure all digital citizens have the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online while also protecting their personal information. As an official Champion, Tandem reinforces their commitment to cybersecurity, online safety, and privacy.

"We seek to help improve the security posture of our customers through easy-to-use tools, so it's a natural fit for us to be involved with the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month campaign," states Brady Cook, General Manager for Tandem.

As a part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Tandem is making available several resources to help security-conscious companies be more proactive with their security programs.

1 – "Vendor SOC Report Review Template" – A checklist in printable PDF format. With this resource, companies have a straightforward method for reviewing third-party SOC reports (Systems and Organization Controls) efficiently and accurately. View the PDF.

2 – "The State of Cybersecurity Report 2020" – Survey results from over 250 cybersecurity professionals. The report provides insight into the top trends in cybersecurity for financial institutions. View the report.

3 – "Spear Phishing Training" – Complimentary phishing training video. Companies can share the training video with their employees as part of their security awareness program. In the video, two security experts show exactly how someone can take personal information available online and create a targeted phishing email that could do serious harm. View the video.
