ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia cyber security firm is working with the government to promote cyber security.

During national cyber security awareness month, NEOS is partnering with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the US Department of Homeland Security to promote online safety.

Officials said cyber criminals can target you through hacks and emails and websites infected with ransom ware. 

"It's very important that everybody take cyber security seriously. It affects everyone, we're all interconnected so again just be safe online," said Rob Collins, NEOS CEO.

Collins said you need to have up to date virus protection on your computer and be aware of best security practices to protect your personal information.
