National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2019: Own It. Secure It. Protect It. #BeCyberSmart
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is here! Observed every October, NCSAM was created in collaboration between government and industry “to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure all Americas have the resources they need to be safe and more secure online.”
Originally launched in October 2004, NCSAM focuses on an overarching theme for the month, with this year’s theme being “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.” NCSAM 2019 is focused on emphasizing personal accountability, as well as proactive behavior to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace, with key areas of focus including digital privacy, common cyber threats, ecommerce security and more.
Each week throughout October, we’ll be providing tips on how you can participate in NCSAM by incorporating this year’s themes into your daily lives. By practicing these tips and being proactive, you’ll be doing your part in ensuring you’ll be safer and more secure online.
