October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
National Cyber Security Awareness Month

And no, I’m not just making that up! There’s even an official hashtag, #CyberAware. And if it’s got an official hashtag, you know it’s for real.

The whole point of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSA) is to raise awareness about cybersecurity. Things like ransomware, business email compromise, personal health information theft, intellectual property theft and identity theft.

Our literal office picnic
Office Picnic

It’s been difficult finding nice, sunny days this summer. Unlike last year when we had a wonderful picnic at Kanawha State Forest under sunny skies, this year the threat of rain has been hanging around every weekend.

Cody Clay, from running plays to running code
Cody Clay

At 6 foot, 5 inches tall, Cody Clay is a big guy. When you see him, you can tell right away that he’s the kind of guy that fits right in on a football field. You wouldn’t picture him fitting in with the horned rimmed glasses worn by the computer nerds of 90’s sitcoms. Nor would you associate him with the lumberjack beards and gauged ears of the modern Silicon Valley hipster. But the truth is, he has more in common with them than he does with his fellow jocks on the gridiron.
