    9 Aug 2021 By

    What is cyber security awareness month?

    Cyber security awareness month is an annual global initiative to raise awareness about:

    • Cyber security threats;
    • Good cyber security practices for citizens and organisations;
    • The available resources to protect people online, through education and training.

    It started in 2003 as collaboration between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance. The called it NCSAM (National Cyber Security Awareness Month).

    Then in 2013, The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) started the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM).

    How to get involved in cyber security awareness

    Many organisations see this month as an opportunity to raise awareness about the best cyber security practices. One way is enrolling staff in a training course.

    At Knowledge Train, we understand the importance of cyber security for new and current employees. Therefore, we have developed an online cyber security awareness course for employees as a basic introduction to cyber security awareness.
