NJCCIC Kicks Off Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Following Gov. Phil Murphy’s proclamation recognizing October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell is ramping up efforts to promote the nation’s leading cyber competition, along with cyber safety across the Garden State this month and beyond.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
New Jersey’s observance runs parallel to the national Cybersecurity Awareness Month campaign, an initiative that’s marking its 20th anniversary in 2023.
The federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency leads the campaign, and this year, will encourage individuals and organizations to take personal responsibility and ownership of their role as it pertains to cyber safety.In lockstep with the national campaign’s objectives, the NJCICC, a division of the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, is urging the public to implement several resiliency-building cyber hygiene practices, to include:
- Using strong passwords
- Enabling multifactor authentication
- Updating software
- Recognizing and reporting phishing incidents
