The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a non-profit public-private partnership focused on cybersecurity awareness and education for all digital citizens, announced Tuesday the launch of its National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) Web Portal in advance of the 9th annual month of awareness held each October.
The portal offers online safety tips and resources including free security check-ups, posters, fact sheets, and information about NCSAM activities.
The portal is designed to support anyone making efforts to help keep people safer and more secure online, and is available at: http://www.staysafeonline.org/ncsam/.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month is a coordinated national effort focusing on the need for improved online safety and security for all Americans.
NCSA, along with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, has sponsored National Cyber Security Awareness Month every October since its founding in 2003.
These three organizations work together to empower consumers, schools, businesses and government agencies to stay safe online, devoting the full month of October to public awareness and education.
This year’s theme “Our Shared Responsibility,” aims to amplify the importance for all Internet users to do their part in making the Internet safer.
There are opportunities for all audiences to get involved. Companies, organizations, libraries, universities and others throughout the nation are encouraged to celebrate the month in their own unique ways reaching their customers, students and citizens.
