Virginia Beach, VA — G2OPS has become a National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2017 Champion. G2OPS will be joining a growing global effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, and individuals to promote online safety awareness.
Recognized every 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, G2OPS recognizes its commitment to cybersecurity, online safety and privacy.
