Here at InfoSec Institute, we get pretty excited about events like National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and European Cyber Security Month (ECSM). Cybersecurity is our lifestyle, and Cyber Security Awareness Month is our opportunity to help you motivate your employees to care about security at your organization.
If you’re like most cybersecurity pros we know, the security awareness training manager hat is just one of many hanging in your server room. While you’ve been busy patching vulnerabilities and monitoring your networks, we’ve built out a series of free resources to help you kick off Cybersecurity Awareness Month like you’ve been planning for it all year.
The best part? We’ve released enough free resources to help you promote secure workplace habits all month long. Follow our roadmap to boost your employees’ security awareness in October and beyond.
