U.S. Department of Homeland Security Kicks Off Cybersecurity Awareness Month

WASHINGTON – Throughout October, in recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Department of Homeland Security is committed to raising awareness about how to combat the constant and ever-increasing threat from malicious cyber actors. Many of the Department’s component agencies play a lead role in strengthening the nation’s resilience across public and private sectors, investigating malicious cyber activity, and advancing cybersecurity alongside our democratic values and principles.

“We work across our entire Department to strengthen the nation’s cybersecurity. From the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to the Coast Guard, from the Secret Service to the Transportation Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security is strengthening our partnerships with the private sector and informing the American people how best to secure their cyber footprint in an increasingly interconnected world,” said Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas. “We help protect federal civilian departments and agencies, drive best practices, advise critical infrastructure owners and operators, and support schools, non-profit organizations, state and local authorities, election officials, and many others. We are proud to be a part of the public-private collaborative that is essential for our success.”
