Cybersecurity Awareness Month Celebrates 20 Years

October is right around the corner and that means another Cybersecurity Awareness Month is here.

Since 2004, the United States and Congress have recognized October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Cybersecurity Alliance have introduced the "Secure Our World" campaign, which highlights 4 simple steps you can take to protect yourself, your family and your business from online threats.

In support of NCSAM, the Schneider Downs Cybersecurity team is releasing a new article series focused on industry-specific cyber threats based on the 2023 Verizon DBIR Report. The articles are available to view on our dedicated Cybersecurity Awareness Month webpage or at the links below:

Additionally, our team is highlighting some of our most popular security awareness materials and thought leadership of the past year, outlined below.
