Overwhelmed After Cybersecurity Awareness Month?

Share This Post:

In 2004, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance launched National Cybersecurity Awareness Month as a country-wide effort to help the public remain safe and secure as they became more active online. Five years ago, the amount of communication being shared with the public was significantly less than it is today. Last month, social media, traditional news media, and corporate communications were flooded with messaging around “See Yourself in Cyber”. This new messaging and call to action can be translated into recognizing the fact that people are often the weakest link in your cybersecurity posture, and that each one of us has a choice and the responsibility to consciously be part of the solution vs being part of the problem.

The CISA.gov Cybersecurity Awareness Month webpage has a large number of resources and guides that cover how to improve cyber hygiene, what cybersecurity best practices organizations should deploy, and how to improve cybersecurity defenses and posture.

The volume of information and perspectives being shared to the public can be overwhelming, especially to leaders and organizations that are focused on serving customers and growing and operating their business versus trying to build a cybersecurity program.
