Every October, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) dedicates a month to cybersecurity awareness. This initiative is crucial in our digital age, aiming to:
- Promote Cyber Hygiene: Encourage secure online practices.
- Raise Awareness: Educate about cyber threats like malware and phishing.
- Empower Individuals: Equip people to protect their digital lives.
- Support Organizations: Offer guidance for business and government security.
- Foster a Cybersecurity Culture: Instill good practices everywhere.
NIST, a cybersecurity authority, plays a key role in providing resources and expertise. Get involved by learning, sharing tips, updating software, using strong passwords, and staying informed. Together, we can make the internet safer for all.
