Welcome to Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2021!

USACE has once again joined the annual campaign led by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA). The campaign empathizes how the public and private sector can work together and do our own individual part in building a secure online world.

Our overarching theme is “Do Your Part, #BeCyberSmart.”
Many cyber professionals are aware of the risks and issues in our increasingly virtual world. At USACE we want your help to improve out cyber posture and use the knowledge you get at work to help others take a safe and aware approach to cybersecurity.

Play hard to get with strangers. Cyber criminals use phishing tactics, hoping to fool their victims. If you’re unsure who an email is from—even if the details appear accurate—or if the email looks ‘phishy,’ do not respond and do not click on any links or attachments found in that email. When available use the “report phish” or “report” option to help your organization or email provider block other suspicious emails before then arrive in your inbox.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is returning for its 18th year during October 2021.
