National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) — held annually in October — is a collaborative effort between government, industry and organizations of all sizes to promote a safer, more secure and more trusted internet.
Since its inception under leadership from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), NCSAM has grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions and young people nationwide. 2016 marks the 13th year of National Cyber Security Awareness Month – there is no better time than now to get involved!
Throughout the month of October, NCSA will provide a wide variety of easy-to-use, sharable resources to help you spread the word. Each week will showcase a different cybersecurity topic for you to do discuss with your community, friends, family and students.
