October Cybersecurity Awareness Month


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Office of Technology (IOT) and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) urge Hoosiers to follow cybersecurity practices in their online activities to protect personal information.

October is designated as Cybersecurity Awareness Month in Indiana via a proclamation from Gov. Eric J. Holcomb and nationally by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other partners.

Indiana lawmakers recently passed legislation that will increase the amount of information sharing regarding cyberattacks and other threats across state agencies and local government. The law requires public-sector entities to report incidents such as ransomware, software vulnerability exploitations, denial-of-service attacks and more.
