Cybersecurity Awareness Month resource kit launched

KnowBe4 has announced a new resource kit in recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) in October.

Each October, public and private sector organisations acknowledge NCSAM to foster awareness around online security, with 2023 also marking its 20th anniversary. Rather than the usual weekly themes, this year’s campaign will focus on four key behaviours to promote security: 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 and 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 of 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.”

The organisation is also offering a no-cost training video, ‘2023 Common Threats’, featuring the late Kevin Mitnick. The full resource kit is available for download here.
