Focus Awareness-Building Through a Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Publish Date: 3 October 2017

The National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is an example of a cybersecurity awareness campaign at national level that builds on the attention provided by declaring a month dedicated to a specific topic to mobilise actors; raise the activity profile; and amplify communication, awareness, and capacity building activities.

The campaign focuses on different topics each year. Each week of the one-month campaign is dedicated to a particular topic, which can vary from awareness building, to practical skills, behaviour, and tools for end-users.
