National Cyber Security Awareness Month — held every October since 2004 — is a “national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure,” according to the organizers
It’s a cooperative venture of:
— Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
— National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)
— Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC)
The focus is promoting safe computing practices for home users, schools, businesses and governments to help them protect their computers, children and data.
