CISA Unveils Public Online Safety Campaign Ahead of Cybersecurity Awareness Month
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has announced the start of its Secure Our World nationwide cybersecurity public awareness campaign, which will provide tools and pointers on the safe use of online resources.
The campaign also includes a Secure Our World program providing online safety steps, such as using a password manager for stronger passwords, setting multi-factor authentication, updating software and identifying and reporting online fraud methods like phishing, CISA said.
The campaign’s launch precedes the Cybersecurity Awareness Month scheduled annually in October.
CISA is inviting the public to join as partner in the month-long event via the free resources available for followers of its Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube accounts to promote online safety.
The U.S. president and Congress declared October each year as Cybersecurity Awareness Month in 2004 for the public and private sectors to work jointly in raising cybersecurity awareness.
