October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month
What is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month?
This initiative is co-led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA). Their goal is to raise awareness about digital security and empower everyone to protect their personal data from digital forms of crime.
The Whitehouse released a Proclamation of Cybersecurity Awareness Month in 2022, urging the nation to recognize the importance of cybersecurity, take action to protect against threats and support national security and resilience.
