NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS MONTH

October 2013 marks the tenth annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).

NCSAM reminds citizens that online safety and security is a shared responsibility. Through a series of events and initiatives across the country, NCSAM will engage public and private sector partners to raise awareness and educate Americans about cybersecurity, and increase the resiliency of the Nation and its cyber infrastructure. NCSAM 2013 will focus on a different critical cybersecurity issue each week in October, including:

  • Week One: Cyber Security is Our Shared Responsibility.  The next ten years in cybersecurity are critical to ensure a safe, secure, resilient cyberspace where the American way of life can thrive. Given the stakes we must remain focused on meeting the challenges of the next ten years.
  • Week Four: Cyber Crime. Focuses on national and local efforts to prevent traditional crimes like theft, fraud, and abuse that can also take place online.
