Celebrating Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Here at Katzcy, we consider every month to be Cybersecurity Awareness Month. We support so many clients that are incredible stewards of cybersecurity, whether they’re building software that protects sensitive data, or helping organizations implement and improve their IT systems. We’re also committed to growing a more diverse cyber workforce through initiatives like the U.S. Cyber Games.

Now in its 18th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Katzcy is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Additionally, we’re excited to share that we’ve joined the Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champions Program, which is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals committed to the Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme of ‘Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.’ 

Katzcy leads several initiatives related to growing a more diverse cybersecurity workforce and building that community, such as:

More than ever before, technology plays a part in almost everything we do. Connected devices have been woven into society as an integral part of how people communicate and access services essential to their well being. Despite these great advances in technology and the conveniences this provides, recent events have shown us how quickly our lives and businesses can be disrupted when cyber criminals and adversaries use technology to do harm. 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to shed light on these security vulnerabilities, while offering actionable guidance surrounding behaviors anyone can take to protect themselves and their organizations. Everyone has a responsibility to do their part in securing our interconnected world.

If we all work together – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences or training employees – our society will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
