The Software Engineering Institute will support Cybersecurity Awareness Month with free webcasts on a range of cybersecurity topics, hosted by researchers from the SEI's CERT Division. The webcasts will take place from 1:30-2:30 p.m., ET, on Oct. 7, 21 and 27.

Every October since 2004, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) have sponsored an awareness-raising campaign about the importance of cybersecurity across the nation. The theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is "Do your part. #BeCyberSmart."

The CISA website offers resources, such as pamphlets and social media messaging, to help individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace, stressing personal accountability and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.

Each week this month, CISA will promote a different cybersecurity message: "Be Cyber Smart;" "Phight the Phish;" "Explore, Experience, Share;" and "Cybersecurity First."

To help spread the word, the SEI's CERT Division will highlight some of its cybersecurity research and development by presenting free webcasts:

The webcasts are free to attend and require registration.
