National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) aims to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and offer resources for all of us to be safer and more secure online. Now in its 17th year, the theme for 2020 is

“Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.”

With many still working from home, the theme is intended to push each of us to take proactive steps to enhance and protect our own cybersecurity along with personal accountability for the things we do online. Personal devices, along with any IoT enhancements you add to your home, are some of the most insecure and easy to access so it is critical to secure those. If You Connect It, Protect It.


Each week has a theme and here at F5, we will be sharing focused content to reinforce NCSAM during the weeks ahead.

  • October 1 and 2: Official NCSAM Kick-off
  • Week of October 5 (Week 1): If You Connect It, Protect It.
  • Week of October 12 (Week 2): Securing Devices at Home and Work.
  • Week of October 19 (Week 3): Securing Internet-Connected Devices in Healthcare.
  • Week of October 26 (Week 4): The Future of Connected Devices.

We have already started.

The DevCentral Community kicked off NCSAM Thursday October 1, at 12:30 Pacific with F5 CISO, Mary Gardner joining John Wagnon live on our DevCentral Connects – Security Sidebar video series!
