Cybersecurity Awareness Month — celebrated every October — was created in 2004 as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. NIST has partnered with other federal agencies to help raise awareness about cybersecurity and engage with public and private sector partners through events and initiatives to raise awareness about cybersecurity, provide them with tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase the resiliency of the Nation in the event of a cyber incident. Let’s remember to #BeCyberSmart.
This year, the focus is on four key behaviors throughout the month:
Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022: Updating Software (October 17, 2022)
Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022: Recognizing & Reporting Phishing (October 24, 2022)
