The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has named October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month. https://www.cisa.gov/news/2021/10/01/cisa-kicks-cybersecurity-awareness-month

According to the press release, CISA and President Biden are “designating October as a time for the public and private sectors to work together to continue raising awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and equip the public with the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.”

The Agency is encouraging everyone to be Cyber Smart and practice good “cyber hygiene” including these four steps to protect devices:

  • “Implement multi-factor authentication on your accounts and make it 99% less likely you’ll get hacked.”
  • “Update your software. In fact, turn on automatic updates.”
  • “Think before you click. Over 90% of successful cyber attacks start with a phishing email.”
  • “Use strong passwords, and ideally a password manager to generate and store unique passwords.”

More information about Cybersecurity Awareness Month, including information and resources for organizations interested in helping to get the word out about the importance of cybersecurity, is available at CISA.gov/cybersecurity-awareness-month.
