NATONAL CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS MONTH OCTOBER 2019

“OWN IT, SECURE IT, PROTECT IT”

Attention all Facility and Company Security Officers, the month of October 2019 is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM).  To help promote awareness activities, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), have co-published a Toolkit to help us all “#BeCyberSmart”.  The overarching theme for this year is “OWN IT, SECURE IT, PROTECT IT”- and will focus on key areas including citizen privacy, consumers devices, and e-commerce security.

The 2019 Toolkit has Top Tips to share during NCSAM; Engagement Ideas, Criteria for Hosting a NCSAM Partner Event and other useful Cybersecurity Initiatives.  In this day and time cybersecurity threats are REAL!  There are numerous incidents where maritime facilities and companies have been attacked in recent years and the damages are “catastrophic” in cost, downtime and loss of customer trust.
