October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
Each year, the National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) joins with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) and other partners to support National Cyber Security Awareness Month, a national campaign focused on educating the American public, businesses, schools and government agencies about ways to secure their part of cyber space, computers and our nation's critical infrastructure.
The goal of National Cyber Security Awareness Month is to educate everyday Internet users on how to "Protect Yourself Before You Connect Yourself", by taking simple and effective steps. These steps will teach Internet users how to safeguard one's computer from the latest online threats, offer ways to respond to potential cyber-crime incidents, and link how each person's cyber security affects securing our nation's critical infrastructure.
We invite all interested to join our efforts to educate the public on how to stay safe online.
