About the CISA Cybersecurity Awareness Program

The CISA Cybersecurity Awareness Program is a national public awareness effort that increases the understanding of cyber threats and empowers the American public to be safer and more secure online. It encourages Americans to view Internet safety as a shared responsibility–at home, in the workplace, and in our communities.

The CISA Cybersecurity Awareness Program is part of an unprecedented effort among federal and state governments, industry, and non-profit organizations to promote safe online behavior and practices. It is a unique public-private partnership, implemented in coordination with the National Cyber Security Alliance.

More and more, Americans are using new technologies and spending more time online. Our growing dependence on technology, coupled with the increasing threat of cyber attacks, demands greater security in our online world. This presents the need for simple, easy-to-understand resources and tips to help ensure their safety and security. The CISA Cybersecurity Awareness Program provides access to resources to give Americans the tools they need to make more informed decisions when using the Internet.
