National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
This October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is commemorating its 15th year as an annual initiative to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. NCSAM 2018 is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online, while increasing the resiliency of the Nation during cyber-threats. DHS is the federal, national lead for NCSAM. DHS also co-leads NCSAM with the National Cyber Security Alliance.

NCSAM 2018 takes a two-part, synced approach to facilitating discussion and emphasis on cybersecurity as our shared responsibility. DHS will promote and emphasize four key messages, tied together by one overarching theme. DHS's key messages are month-long goals designed to drive cybersecurity discussions, events, resources, and activities from DHS.

Overarching Theme

-Cybersecurity is our shared responsibility and we all must work together to improve our Nation's cybersecurity

Key Messages

- Strengthen the Nation's cybersecurity ecosystem
- Cybersecurity is a cross-cutting, cross-sector challenge, so we must tackle it together
- Increase and strengthen the cybersecurity workforce across all sectors
- Secure critical infrastructure from cyber threats

The NCSAM 2018 Toolkit is a comprehensive guide with a wealth of resources to make it easy for you and your organization, regardless of size or industry, to engage and promote NCSAM.
