KnowBe4’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month Resource Kit contains a user guide and weekly training suggestions to assist in planning out the month. The kit includes user resources featuring eight interactive training modules and videos such as a new interactive training module, "2022 Social Engineering Red Flags". Additionally, the kit contains multiple security awareness infographics, hints and tips, security awareness posters, digital signage and more- all available for the first time in multiple languages.

“Cybersecurity Awareness Month provides an exceptional opportunity to share this resource kit with IT professionals and users,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “These resources aim to help organizations with security awareness training plans and initiatives to educate and recognize the necessity of building a security culture among users. Bad actors continue to attack organizations, small and large, frequently targeting the human as the weakest link. Therefore, using Cybersecurity Awareness Month to focus on efforts to strengthen this layer are essential to better protect our organizations, not only in the month of October but throughout the year.”

The theme for this year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 by the National Cybersecurity Alliance is See Yourself in Cyber. The theme empowers individuals and organizations to own their role in always protecting their part of cyberspace- from all places. If everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
