Press Release:

    NCSAM 2020: Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.

    Now in its 17th year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across our Nation and ensure that all Americans have the resources to be safer and secure online.

    The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) welcomes and thanks those of you joining us for another year of NCSAM, as well as those who joining for the first time. Every year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month conveys a clear message of partnership between government and industry, from the White House to the individual. CISA and the National Cyber Security Alliance are proud to announce this year's theme: "Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart."

    This theme encourages individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.

    Recognizing that all personal devices are potentially vulnerable, throughout October each weekly theme supports the overarching ask to "Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart." Partners are welcome to follow along but also encouraged to create their own areas of focus relevant to their organization.

  • October 1 and 2: Official NCSAM Kick-off
  • Week of October 5 (Week 1): If You Connect it, Protect it.
  • Week of October 12 (Week 2): Securing Devices at Home and Work
  • Week of October 19 (Week 3): Securing Internet-Connected Devices in Healthcare
  • Week of October 26 (Week 4): The Future of Connected Devices

    We encourage you to use National Cybersecurity Awareness Month's hashtag #BeCyberSmart before, during and after October to promote your involvement in raising cybersecurity awareness.

    Once again, thank you for your continued support and commitment to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and helping all Americans stay safe and secure online. Please email our team or visit the NCSAM website to learn more.
