October Is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
The digital revolution has enabled us to connect to the internet virtually anywhere at any time. Even when we are not directly connected, the internet supports our everyday lives through our financial transactions, transportation networks, emergency response systems, personal communication and more. This reliance on the internet will only continue to increase as technology advances and access to the internet expands. To maximize the potential of a digital society, we must protect the resources that make it possible.
No individual, business, or government entity is solely responsible for securing the internet. If each of us does our part to strengthen security practices, raise community awareness, educate young people, and train employees we can work to build a safer, more secure and resilient cyber environment. One way you can get involved? Participate in National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
Through a series of events and initiatives across the country, National Cyber Security Awareness Month engages public and private sector partners to raise awareness and educate Americans about cybersecurity, and increase the resiliency of the nation and its cyber infrastructure.
