National Cyber Security Awareness Month, conducted every October since 2003, is an annual awareness-raising effort that seeks to encourage everyone to protect their networks and critical cyber infrastructure.
NCSA works in collaboration with partners across the country to empower consumers, schools, businesses and government agencies to stay safe online during NCSAM and throughout the rest of the year.
Of late, NCSA launched its NCSAM Web Portal in advance of the 9th annual month of awareness held each October. (Read: Web Portal to Help You Stay Safe Online)
