National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019

Held every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.

NCSAM 2019 emphasizes personal accountability and stresses the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace. This year’s overarching message —  “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.” — will focus on key areas including citizen privacy, consumer devices, and e-commerce security.

The NCSAM 2019 Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to make it easy for you and your organization, regardless of size or industry, to engage and promote NCSAM. Use the guide to help you engage your stakeholders and promote positive, lasting cybersecurity habits.

Forgot Your Password?

A password manager is a secure locked vault of your usernames and passwords that helps defend against hackers. It solves the problem of generating strong unique passwords, and acts like a digital wizard filling in your login info whenever you need to log into a site.
