This year’s campaign theme — “See Yourself in Cyber” — demonstrates that while cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject, ultimately, it’s really all about people . This October will focus on the “people” part of cybersecurity, providing information and resources to help educate CISA partners and the public, and ensure all individuals and organizations make smart decisions whether on the job, at home or at school – now and in the future. We encourage each of you to engage in this year’s efforts by creating your own cyber awareness campaigns and sharing this messaging with your peers.
4 Things You Can DoThroughout October, CISA and NCA will highlight key action steps that everyone should take:
Your RoleWhen we say See Yourself in Cyber, we mean see yourself in cyber no matter what role you play. As an individual or consumer, take basic steps to protect your online information and privacy. Vendors and suppliers can take ownership of their role, while protecting their brand and reputation, by putting strong cybersecurity in place at work to help prevent an incident at your location or further down the supply chain. Critical infrastructure owners and operators, you are part of a larger network of functions and systems that rely on or support critical infrastructure. Learn how your organization plays a part in ensuring cybersecurity for the larger ecosystem. Finally, there is a global need for skilled, diverse workers with technical skills to meet the cyber challenges of today and tomorrow, so find out if this is the career field for you.From the NASA FY23 Budget Request:INFORMATION TECHNOLOGYThe IT Program provides the information services needed to fulfill NASA’s multifaceted missions and operations, including cybersecurity, IT asset planning and management, and technical support. NASA's Information Technology Program helps improve Agency outcomes by accelerating results through tools that increase productivity; sharing NASA’s data and discoveries; and increasing the quality, resiliency, and cost-effectiveness of its information systems. Reliable, adaptable, and secure cloud-based IT is increasingly important to NASA's mission portfolio because it is a key enabler for advances in science, technology, aeronautics, and space exploration.NASA's Information Technology (IT) program provides secure connectivity and data access for the NASA workforce and its partners, deploying over 100,000 continuous diagnostics and mitigation (CDM) tools across the corporate and mission networks; protecting Government data from approximately 5.3 billion cyberattacks per day. The program provides NASA end-users with cloud-based email inboxes and collaboration capabilities. Additionally, the IT program supports over 250 applications that empower scientific research, enables mission success, and provides data access to achieve new discoveries.EXPLANATION OF MAJOR CHANGES IN FY 2023In FY 2023, SSMS modernization will provide for critical upgrades and extensions of IT systems and infrastructure. Improvements include: (1) implementation of high cybersecurity encryption and credentialing to ensure protections for classified and highly sensitive data, including International Traffic in Arms (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) data; (2) development and adoption support for Future of Work applications that empower a hybrid and geographically dispersed workforce; (3) network expansion and improvements to ensure secure and high-speed accessibility; (4) decommissioning physical data centers to transition to cloud operations; and (5) licensing and software upgrades to enhanced security and operational capability; (6) implementing the IT Supply Chain Risk Management program to evaluate and assess software and IT hardware components for Federal and Agency cybersecurity regulation and policy compliance.
