October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
The theme for 2022 in the Commonwealth of Virginia is "We’re all in.” Because we are all in on cybersecurity in Virginia.
We want to empower you with the awareness and tools you need to protect your part of cyberspace. This includes information on implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences or training employees.
We are excited to share information for Cybersecurity Awareness Month (CSAM) 2022.
As the month progresses, we’ll add resources that you can use to customize your CSAM activities and communications. If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
