October marks the 18th anniversary of CISA’s (Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency) “Cybersecurity Awareness Month”. 

Founded in 2004 by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cyber Security Awareness Month seeks to promote awareness and best practices for online security. The theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart”. 

This year’s CISA weekly topics include:

Week 1: Be Cyber Smart (October 4th)

Week 2: Fight the Phish! (October 11th)

Week 3: Explore. Experience. Share (October 18th)

Week 4: Cybersecurity First (October 25th)

The week of October 18th has been designated as “Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week” to promote and inform potential job seekers about available careers in the cybersecurity industry.

Critical Insight will be participating in Cybersecurity Awareness Month with a series of free training events, webinars, and other security-related offerings.
