National Cyber Security Awareness Month

10/1/2013

This October marks the 10th anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), a nationwide initiative that helps people learn about cybersecurity and find ways to protect their homes, communities and businesses.

NCSAM is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in conjunction with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center. NCSAM is an opportunity for business owners and cybersecurity specialists to share their insights with each other and help the general public identify ways to improve cybersecurity. Visit the DHS website for more information.

Each week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month highlights an important set of cybersecurity topics that range from protecting information on a personal mobile device to preventing cybercrime on a local, regional and national scale. Visit the NCSAM website for a detailed schedule of activities and events.
