October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

by Lynnette Nolan | Oct 06, 2010

Cybersecurity means a variety of things to a variety of people. Sure it includes protection against phishing scams, credit card fraud, viruses, online predators, etc. But at Carbonite, we wake up every morning thinking about keeping your irreplaceable data backed up and secure, so you can access it from anywhere and restore it to your computer when you experience that inevitable crash.  What’s more, Carbonite runs in the background, automatically backing up your files, so you don’t have to think about it.

Security experts agree the best way to backup your data is offsite. This way if your home or office is damaged, your data is secure in a remote location. Not only does Carbonite provide this level of security, but we also encrypt your files before they leave your PC, so nobody can see your data without your password.

In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’re giving away a free one year Carbonite subscription each Friday in October. This account is good for unlimited backup as well as remote access to all of your backed up files from any computer Web browser, iPhone or Blackberry Smartphone (Android coming soon). If the winner already is a Carbonite subscriber, we’ll extend their subscription for another year.

The rules are simple:

  • Follow @carbonite on Twitter
  • Retweet the following message between 12:01 am EST and 11:59 pm EST any Friday in October:
