October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), a collaborative effort between government and industry focused on promoting personal accountability and encouraging behavior to enhance cybersecurity. This year’s overarching message. “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT”, stresses the importance of individuals taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace. Key messaging encourages the public to understand, secure, and protect their digital profiles with more in depth guidance on relevant topics provided via a series of documents on the NCSAM 2019 homepage.
Additional resources are available through the “Stop. Think. Connect” campaign, created to increase understanding of cybersecurity threats and empower the public to be safer and more secure online. If you are looking to improve cybersecurity at your facility, the Stop. Think Connect toolkit is an excellent resource with materials specifically designed for a variety of audiences including industry and small businesses.
