    HI All, with COVID-19 still being in the way of face to face meetings and public gathering, I am wondering what are Financial Institutions planning on doing for CyberSecurity Awareness Month in October. Do you have some ideas/activities you can share ?

    Hi Kouadjo Bini,

    I wanted to comment on your question. I know you were looking to see what other financial institutions were planning to do for Cybersecurity Awareness month, but I wanted to jump in and give you a couple links to some great online resources for creating a more virtual awareness campaign.

    Both of the resources below provide content broken out with weekly themes that can be used in a virtual campaign (newsletters, infographics, email content, tips for your program etc.). This allows for you to really customize how you spread the awareness and make it fit your business needs. The resources are all free and can be printed or used electronically.

    We use these resources ourselves and find them really effective and easy to implement.

    I would also be interested to hear what others are using.
