October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month 

Not everyone knows, but October is officially National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM is observed every October and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It was created in 2004 as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure everyone has the information they need to stay safer and protect their personal information online.

“In 2017, we again witnessed significant breaches and the proliferation of ransomware that had impact in the United States and across the globe. Cybersecurity education and awareness is more critical than ever. National Cyber Security Awareness Month reminds everyone that the internet is a shared resource and protecting it is a shared responsibility. Individuals and businesses must do their part to use the internet safely and more securely.” —Michael Kaiser, Executive Director, NCSA

Each week in October is dedicated to a timely topic of importance to consumers and businesses – bringing widespread attention to critical cybersecurity issues, such as the looming cyber workforce shortage, and the impact of emerging technologies and connected devices on Americans’ security and critical infrastructure.

We’re happy to be promoting cybersecurity awareness at a number of Fall events.

This Fall we have the honor of presenting at a number of local and national events to help with cybersecurity awareness training. Featured speaking engagements include:

We’re proud to be an official NCSAM Champion.

NCSAM Champion organizations, which include companies of all sizes, schools and school districts, colleges and universities, nonprofits and government entities, represent those dedicated to promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet.

We’re also a partner of STOP. THINK. CONNECT., the global cybersecurity awareness campaign, to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. STOP. THINK. CONNECT. advises all Internet users to take security measures, understand the consequences of their behavior and actions and enjoy the benefits of the Internet.

Everyone can make a difference during National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).

Keeping the internet safe & secure is our shared responsibility. Whether you have a minute, an hour or a day – or all month long – check out ways you can participate and support NCSAM on social media, at home, at work or school and in the community.

Of course, we’re here to help too. If you’re looking for a way to bring cybersecurity into the conversation at your organization, just let us know and we welcome the opportunity to team up with you and champion the cause.

Stay Safe,

Your Friends @ Defendify
