National Cyber Awareness System
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about cybersecurity. Creating a culture of cybersecurity is critical for all organizations—large and small businesses, academic institutions, non-profits, and government agencies—and is a responsibility shared among all employees. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published resources including standards, guidelines, and best practices to help organizations of all sizes to strengthen cyber resilience.
US-CERT encourages organizations and employees to review the following resources:
- NIST Cybersecurity Framework,
- DHS Stop.Think.Connect. Toolkit,
- National Cyber Security Alliance Workplace Tips, and
- US-CERT Home and Business Networks page.
