National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
The Department of Homeland Security has named October National Cybersecurity Awareness month, which is an annual campaign to bring awareness to cybersecurity. According to DHS, "we live in a world that is more connected than ever before. The Internet touches almost all aspects of everyone’s daily life, whether we realize it or not. National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives to raise awareness about cybersecurity, provide them with tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase the resiliency of the Nation in the event of a cyber incident."
