October is CyberSecurity Awareness Month

October marks the arrival of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a public awareness campaign launched by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA)Our mission is clear: to arm individuals with the knowledge and tools needed to safeguard their personal data from the pervasive threat of digital crime.

As we celebrate the 20th year of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we take stock of the strides made in security education in that time, while also looking towards the path ahead. This sentiment echoes the theme of this years campaign; "Secure our World," emphasizing our collective mission to forge a secure, interconnected global landscape.
