"These events will bring together the security community," Woerner said. "Attendees will get information about what steps to take and who to contact if they run into a cybersecurity issue. A lot of the rules for online protection were set a long time ago. We've been saying the same thing for years and years, but still a lot of the basic blocking and tackling is not happening."

The cybersecurity awareness campaign will kickoff at the National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Launch and Business Security Summit on Monday, October 1. The event will be held at the Scott Conference Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Omaha from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Woerner will serve as the moderator for the Ask the Expert panel discussion from 4 to 5 p.m., wrapping up the summit.
