Inspiring and promoting awareness & exploration of cybersecurity careers.
Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week aims to inspire, educate, and engage citizens to pursue careers in cybersecurity. Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week takes place during November’s National Career Development Month. Each day of the week-long campaign provides an opportunity to learn about the contributions and innovations of cybersecurity practitioners, and the plethora of job opportunities that can be found when exploring cybersecurity as a career choice.
During the week, learners of all ages, educators, parents, employers, and the community participate in a national recognition of how cybersecurity plays a vital role in the lives of Americans and how building a national cybersecurity workforce enhances America’s national security and promotes economic prosperity.
We invite you to join us in observing Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week, an effort to inspire, educate, and engage children through adults to pursue careers in cybersecurity. Commitments come in all sizes and don’t always require financial investment. You can host an event, distribute career awareness materials, or engage through social media. Be creative!
