LGE Community Credit Union champions cyber readiness

MARIETTA, GA (October 17, 2019) — LGE Community Credit Union is an official Champion of the Cyber Readiness Program: a free, online resource for small-to-medium size businesses offered through the Cyber Readiness Institute.

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the perfect time to announce LGE’s recent alignment with the Cyber Readiness Institute as an official member of the Cyber Readiness Champions network. As a Champion, LGE makes member businesses, vendors, and the public aware of the Cyber Readiness Program: a credible, freely available way for users to learn about cybersecurity basics and take actionable steps to reduce risk.

The Cyber Readiness Program combines an online guide with downloadable tools and resources to cover hot button topics like authentication/passwords, software updates, phishing, and USBs/removable media. Users can also access a Cyber Readiness Starter Kit for free cybersecurity basics resources before fully joining the Program.

Stanley Hixon, LGE’s director of information security, says, “Information security is crucial not only for financial institutions like LGE, but for all businesses. We’re proud to align with the Cyber Readiness Institute to make actionable cybersecurity resources accessible to even the smallest of businesses.”
