Habitu8 Named Official Video Partner for National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Joins Initiative to Promote National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

LOS ANGELES - Sept. 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Habitu8 today announced its selection by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) as the official security awareness video training partner for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), held annually in October.

NCSAM is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals.

"Making cybersecurity entertaining isn't easy, which is why the National Cyber Security Alliance is thrilled to be partnering with Habitu8 for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019. We can't wait for everyone to watch, use and share their fun, educational videos with friends, family and colleagues this October." - Danielle Taylor, NCSA.

About Habitu8
Habitu8 was founded by two guys who'd seen the worst of what security awareness training has to offer. Jason is an industry-recognized security awareness expert who has created video training programs for The Walt Disney Company and Sony Pictures, and Chad is a respected Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and cofounder of Rapid7.

Basically, Habitu8 is on a mission to get rid of boring, mind-numbing training programs and replace them with engaging video training that changes behaviors for good. All it takes is teaching employees how to replace bad habits with good ones—and we're really good at it.


Habitu8 founder and security awareness expert, Jason Hoenich, has participated in the annual NCSAM while working as the security awareness manager at The Walt Disney Company, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Activision Blizzard.

It was while building the program for Disney when Hoenich began producing short, funny, and engaging videos for his coworkers that he began to see the power behind video.

For those signed up as Champions, Habitu8 is providing specially branded versions of their most popular videos for the entire month of October. Topics include Passwords, Social Media Privacy, and Public WiFi.

In addition to the videos, Habitu8 is also including branded versions of their insanely popular and useful Security Awareness Strategy Guides. Based on Hoenich's real-world experience managing and building programs, there is a unique guide dedicated to Security Awareness Program Plans, Phishing Training Programs, and Ambassador Programs. Want to avoid the most common mistakes and build world-class programs? These are your secret weapon!

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Jun 5, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...

NASA moves up 1st all-female spacewalk to fix power unit

Jun 5, 2020

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA has moved up the first all-female spacewalk to this week because of a power system failure at the International Space Station. Astronauts Christina Koch (cook) and Jessica Meir (mere) will now venture out Thursday or Friday, instead of next Monday. A battery power controller failed over the weekend, prompting the change. The women will replace the broken component, rather than install new batteries, which was their original job. Last week, astronauts conducted two spacewalks to replace old space station batteries. They have three more spacewalks to go to finish the battery work. A battery-swapping spacewalk...

Museum of the Bible quietly replaces questioned artifact

Jun 5, 2020

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Museum of the Bible in Washington quietly replaced an artifact purported to be one of a handful of miniature Bibles that a NASA astronaut carried to the moon in 1971 after an expert questioned its authenticity. The move follows an announcement last year that at least five of 16 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that had been on display at the museum were found to be apparent fakes. The museum replaced the original microfilm Bible with one that was donated by an Oklahoma woman who wrote a book about the Apollo Prayer League, which arranged for Apollo...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Jun 5, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Jun 5, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
