Cybersecurity is a Team Sport – Be a Champion this Cybersecurity Awareness Month

NSA is proud to join the global effort to promote strong cybersecurity practices during the 18th annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

In conjunction with our partners, NSA helps provide cybersecurity expertise required to defend the nation. NSA produces cyber threat intelligence, shares guidance and provides cybersecurity assistance to prevent and eradicate foreign cyber threats to National Security Systems, the Department of Defense, and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).

This year, we join the National Cybersecurity Alliance, the Department of Homeland Security and 3,000 companies, schools, government Agencies, nonprofits and countries as a Cyber Champion to provide information on safe cybersecurity practices. NSA supports our partners who are  detecting, resisting, and disrupting cyber threats across the globe.

Throughout the month, we’ll participate with the campaign themes of: Cyber Hygiene; Fight the Phish (spotting and reporting phishing); Explore. Experience. Share. (Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week); and Cybersecurity First.
