The following free resources are available to distribute to Commonwealth of Massachusetts employees, complementing any mandatory cybersecurity awareness trainings required by your department.

There is no excuse not to train employees to be cybersecurity aware. Training should be continuous, and reminders are essential.

Remember: it only takes one email or text message to take down operations at a department or agency.
