From the Document: "Held every October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safe and secure online while increasing the resilience of the Nation against cyber threats. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) co-lead Cybersecurity Awareness Month. [...] To assist with your efforts and participation, this document includes a wealth of resources for you and your organization, regardless of size or industry, to engage and promote the core theme and critical messages leading up to and throughout October. [...] To help frame conversations, design resources, and drive events with internal and external stakeholders, we are breaking down the overarching theme into four weekly messages. The key messages below will be featured throughout the month to help drive events, resources, and activities executed by CISA and NCSA, and we have included potential topics to help jump start your own Cybersecurity Awareness Month efforts. [1] 'Week 1: Be Cyber Smart'[.] Take simple actions to keep our digital lives secure. [2] 'Week 2: Fight the Phish!' Learn how to spot and report phishing attempts to prevent ransomware and other malware attacks. [3] 'Week 3: Explore. Experience. Share.' Commemorate the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education's (NICE) Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week [hyperlink] and the global cybersecurity workforce. [4] 'Week 4: Cybersecurity First[.]' Explore how cybersecurity and staying safe online is increasingly important as we continue to operate virtually in both our work and personal lives."
