Kickoff to National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2017

At CIS, fall doesn’t just mean changing leaves and too much candy – it’s also NCSAM, National CyberSecurity Awareness Month.

We’re diving into NCSAM with a packed schedule featuring weekly blog posts, our latest cybersecurity tips, new videos, and more.

A few highlights to look out for:

For the first week in October, we’ll focus on simple steps to online safety – things everyone can do to make the Internet a better place. Be sure to check out our social media feeds for cybersecurity tips from CIS employees and kick-start your cybersecurity strategy with new CIS Controls videos.

During Week 2, the theme is cybersecurity in the workplace. Join us for a Twitter chat on October 12th - bring your questions about the cybersecurity industry and workplace training and get answers from experts in the field. Join the conversation with #CyberAware and #AskCISecurity.

Week 3 looks at today’s predictions for tomorrow’s future. How will IoT devices shape the cybersecurity landscape? Check out our webinar with GreyCastle Security to learn more. We’ll also take a look at CIS Controls 11 – 14, tackling more advanced cybersecurity threats.

In Week 4, the Internet Wants YOU – so how are you preparing for a career in cybersecurity? Keep an eye out for our infographic on the industry workforce, and learn how you can make the most of education and training opportunities in this growing field.

We’ll close out October with a look at protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats – be sure to check out our blog for insight on this topic from CIS’ Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, John Gilligan.
