National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Posted by NB Wednesday, October 16, 2019

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM is a joint industry and government effort to raise all American’s awareness of cybersecurity-from the individual user/consumer and to businesses and how to protect themselves. This effort is significant as our commerce and services requested are increasingly tied to the cloud and the Internet.

As security professionals, it is an opportunity for us to provide additional education to our clients, whether they are internal users for your businesses or external clients.

Some free tools to help educate people are available to us. Some tools or suggestions to look at are the Department of Homeland Security Resources, including the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies Website with their tool kit, StaySafeOnline, Educause Awareness Campaigns and InfoSec Institutes tools to name a few.

Resources can be developed at your company or institution as well that are more personalized to your institution. Working with Delano Regional Medical Center (DRMC) of Delano, CA, the staff and I conducted a Cybersecurity Awareness Day with DRMC marketing support. To make sure staff know how they could be affected, we used a spinning wheel and had questions tied to each number. The questions covered both hospital and consumer situations. The different situations that could occur were very enlightening to the staff. The hospital then provided small prizes for those people answering the questions correctly such as Starbuck gift cards. In the background a video was also shown on a true story about Medical Insurance Identify Theft. The event was popular, so we have been conducting it yearly.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month National is a great opportunity to take advantage for your business or institution. The Information Systems Security Association of Kansas City wished to help with and encourage this.
