Looking for Cybersecurity Awareness Month ideas? Our free materials and campaign planning resources can help you take your end users’ awareness to new heights next month.

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) and European Cyber Security Month (ECSM), and we are committed to supporting organizations that want to elevate awareness of cybersecurity best practices among their end users. However, we also recognize that infosec teams are often strapped for time and resources, which can make it difficult to deliver quality security awareness training content. That’s why we’ve developed two free campaigns — Cybersecurity Heroes and Best Behavior Bingo — that are designed to help you easily and effectively plan and execute your NCSAM and ECSM initiatives.

Our Cybersecurity Awareness Month materials are available via our website. Both campaigns include the following free resources:

  • A communications plan that provides suggested content for emails to employees, as well as Cybersecurity Awareness Month ideas that can help you engage users and set you up for success.
  • A printable activity tracker that can be shared with end users to allow them to record the activities they complete.
  • Printable completion certificates that can be given to end users who participate in your NCSAM and ECSM initiatives.
  • Web-based cybersecurity videos and tips that your end users can access (and share) from any connected device during Cybersecurity Awareness Month — and beyond. This includes new security awareness training content developed specifically to support the Cybersecurity Heroes campaign: our 60 Seconds to Better Security video blog series.

We hope you will find our Cybersecurity Awareness Month materials to be a valuable addition to your NCSAM and ECSM initiatives. Click the button above to gain access to all the administrator resources for our campaigns.
