What is Cybersecurity Awareness Month?

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is designed to engage and educate public- and private-sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cybersecurity to increase the resiliency of the nation in the event of a cyber incident. Since the Presidential proclamation establishing Cybersecurity Awareness Month in 2004, the initiative has been formally recognized by Congress, federal, state and local governments and leaders from industry and academia. This united effort is necessary to maintain a cyberspace that is safer and more resilient and remains a source of tremendous opportunity and growth for years to come. 

This year, the Cybersecurity Awareness Month’s main focal areas revolve around four key fundamental cybersecurity best practices:

  • Recognizing and reporting phishing – still one of the primary threat actions used by cybercriminals today.
  • Understanding the benefits of using a password manager and dispelling existing myths around password manager security and ease of use.
  • Enabling multi-factor authentication on personal devices and business networks. 
  • Installing updates on a regular basis and turning on automated updates.
