Cybersecurity Awareness Month (CSAM) is an internationally recognized campaign in the month of October that aims to inform the public about the importance of cybersecurity. As the rate of cybercrime continues to rise, everyone can benefit from being informed. If we all do our part by implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees, our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
