KnowBe4 have announced a new resource kit in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) in October. NCSAM is celebrated every October with the goal of bringing together government and industry to ensure everyone has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.
2023 marks 20 years of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Rather than weekly themes, this year’s campaign will focus on the following four key behaviors to be simple and actionable for both individuals and businesses: enabling multi-factor authentication, using strong passwords and a password manager, updating software and recognising and reporting phishing.
KnowBe4 is an official champion for NCSAM with the National Cyber Security Alliance.
The no-cost KnowBe4 National Cyber Security Awareness Month Kit can be downloaded by IT and security professionals to help keep security top of mind for their employees. Some of the resources in the kit include a user guide, weekly planner, awareness posters, cybersecurity tips newsletter, along with an on-demand webinar and white paper.
“NCSAM serves as a great reminder that everyone has a part to play in cybersecurity awareness,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “This year’s theme is focused around key behaviours that aim to create a solid foundation for cybersecurity, which aligns with KnowBe4’s mission to enable employees to make smarter security decisions.
“By offering this resource kit at no cost, we are helping IT and security professionals to shore up their cyber defences to ultimately strengthen their security culture.”
