Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Welcome to Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Held every October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safe and secure online while increasing the resilience of the Nation against cyber threats.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) co-lead Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

Thank you for participating in Cybersecurity Awareness Month. 

Cybersecurity is the art of protecting networks, devices, and data from unlawful access or criminal use, and providing confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.  Much of your personal information is stored either on your computer, smartphone, or tablet.  Knowing how to protect your information is important, not just for individuals but for organizations, as well.  Every time you use the internet, you face choices related to your security.  Your security and the security of the nation depends on making responsible online decisions.  Making the internet safe and secure requires all of us to take responsibility for our own cybersecurity behavior.

Cybersecurity Schedule and Resources

To decrease cybersecurity risks and protect yourself online, CISA offers resources to help you improve your cybersecurity posture.  Use these resources in your communities to encourage strong, nationwide cybersecurity.
