2023 is Health-ISAC’s 7th Year as a Cybersecurity Awareness Champion.

Each October, public and private organizations around the world dedicate the month to cybersecurity awareness messaging. This year, Health-ISAC is sharing resources from the United States, Europe, and Australia.

The U.S. National Cybersecurity Alliance celebrates 20 years of Cybersecurity Awareness Month by partnering with the Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to announce a new evergreen theme; “Secure Our World.”

Coordinated by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and the European Commission, the European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM) is the European Union’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among EU citizens and organisations, and to providing up-to-date online security information through awareness raising and sharing of good practices. 

The Australian Cyber Security Centre’s 2023 overarching theme is “Be cyber wise; don’t compromise.” Other key messaging for the month from ACSC are listed below..

In addition to opening some Member resources to the public, such as Daily Cyber Headlines, Health-ISAC has created informational videos to reinforce cyber hygiene and will be sharing them all month on social media. #cybersecurity #secureourworld
