Protecting the Hill and Your Constituents: National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

  • 2043 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Now more than ever, the line between our online and offline lives is indistinguishable. In these tech-fueled times, our homes, societal well-being, economic prosperity and nation’s security are impacted by the internet. The National Cyber Security Alliance will discuss ways you can leverage National Cybersecurity Awareness Month resources and information to help your colleagues and constituents be safer and more secure. The 15th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) will highlight user awareness among consumers, students/academia and business. NCSAM 2018 will address specific challenges and identify opportunities for behavioral change. It will also remind everyone that protecting the internet is “Our Shared Responsibility.” In addition, NCSAM 2018 will shine a spotlight on the critical need to build a strong, cyber secure workforce to help ensure families, communities, businesses and the country’s infrastructure are better protected.

Each week will have a separate theme focusing on the following:

Week 1: Oct. 1–5 THEME: Make Your Home a Haven for Online Safety 

Week 2: Oct. 8–12 THEME: Millions of Rewarding Jobs: Educating for a Career in Cybersecurity

Week 3: Oct. 15–19 THEME: It’s Everyone’s Job to Ensure Online Safety at Work

Week 4: Oct. 22–26 THEME: Safeguarding the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure
