The theme of the 2022 Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month was Advance. Include. Secure. This theme encompassed how Massachusetts continues to advance its efforts in creating an inclusive and cyber-secure Commonwealth.
The Month highlighted broad audiences—educational institutions, businesses, R&D centers, policy leaders, investors, and technology groups — that come together in the Massachusetts cybersecurity ecosystem. This ecosystem makes Massachusetts a national cybersecurity leader and enables the Commonwealth's citizens and economy to thrive in the face of growing threats. Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month was held concurrently with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
Governor Baker signed an official proclamation on behalf of the Commonwealth to formally announce Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month. Read the official proclamation (PDF) HERE or click on the image to the right.
