What is cybersecurity?

In today's ever-evolving digital landscape, it is vital to safeguard all aspects of your electronic presence. Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems and information from digital threats. Whether you're checking your email, online shopping, posting to social media, or even online gaming with your friends, you could become the victim of a cyberattack.  McLean County is proud to be an official Champion of #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth.
