The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally.

See Yourself in Cyber

This year’s campaign theme —“See Yourself in Cyber”— demonstrates that while cyber security may seem like a complex subject, ultimately, it’s really all about people. This October will focus on the “people” part of cybersecurity, providing information and resources to help educate CISA partners and the public, and ensure all individuals and organizations make smart decisions whether on the job, at home or at school – now and in the future.

See Yourself taking action to stay safe online

For individuals and families, we encourage you to See Yourself taking action to stay safe online.That means enabling basic cyber hygiene practices: update your software, think before you click, have good strong passwords or a password keeper, and enable multi-factor authentication (meaning you need "More Than APassword!") on all your sensitive accounts.

See Yourself joining the cyber workforce

For those considering joining the cyber community, we encourage you to See Yourself joining the cyber workforce.We'll be talking with leaders from acrossthe country about how we can build a cybersecurity workforce that is bigger, more diverse and dedicated to solving the problems that will help keep the American people safe.

See Yourself as part of the solution

For our partners in industry, we encourage you to See Yourself as part of the solution.That means putting operational collaboration into practice, working together to share information in real-time, and reducing risk and build resilience from the start to protect America's critical infrastructure and the systems that Americans rely on every day.

4 Things You Can Do

Throughout October, CISA and NCA will highlight key action steps that everyone should take.

Think Before You Click: Recognize and Report Phishing

If a link looks a little off, think before you click. It could be an attempt to get sensitive information or install malware.

Update Your Software

Don't delay — If you see a software update notification, act promptly. Better yet, turn on automatic updates.

Use Strong Passwords

Use passwords that are long, unique, and randomly generated. Use password managers to generate and remember different, complex passwords for each of your accounts. A passwords manager will encrypt passwords securing them for you!

Enable Multi-Factor Authentication

You need more than a password to protect your online accounts, and enabling MFA makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.
