Cyber Awareness Month 2023

Two Decades of Cyber Awareness Month

2023 marks 20 Years of Cybersecurity Awareness Month. In honour of the 20th year, we’re looking at how far security education and awareness has come in that time, and where it needs to go in order to fulfil our vision of a secure interconnected world.

October holds a special place in the calendar for the security industry—it's National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), a global initiative aimed at promoting cyber security. This concept originated in the United States, led by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, with its inaugural launch in 2004. Now, in its 20th year, NCSAM has gained recognition and participation worldwide, emphasising the importance of cyber security education throughout the year.
