National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2001, is a national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.
Cyber security requires vigilance 365 days per year. However, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the primary drivers of NCSAM, coordinate to shed a brighter light in October on what home users, schools, businesses and governments need to do in order to protect their computers, children, and data.
Anyone – family, employers, consumers, teachers, and students – interested in online safety is encouraged to access the National Cyber Security Awareness Month Web portal. The Web site hosts an abundance of information including tip sheets, ideas for how to get involved, events, and additional awareness resources to help organizations and individuals participate in the public awareness and education campaign.
The portal offers printable materials for schools, businesses, government agencies, law enforcement and consumers. All NCSA materials are free and there is no cost for endorsements or event listings.
