Cybersecurity Awareness Month imageCity Supports National Cyber Security Awareness Month

During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October, and year-round, the City encourages the public to understand the importance of cybersecurity and to stay safe and secure online. “Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.” The City shows its commitment to Cybersecurity Awareness Month by signing up as a 2021 Champion and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to shed light on 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 everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
