National Cyber Security Awareness Month

By Steven Caponi

October marks the 10th National Cyber Security Awareness Month (“NCSAM”), coordinated by the National Cyber Security Alliance (“NCSA”) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”).  Over the past 10 years, the digital world has evolved from flip phones to smartphones, and from social clubs to social networks.  As a result of the ever-evolving technology industry, “[t]here is no endgame in cybersecurity,” said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the NCSA.

The cornerstone of this year’s NCSAM is the DHS’s “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” campaign.  Launched in 2010, STOP. THINK. CONNECT. is a national cybersecurity education and awareness campaign with nearly 100 participating companies, organizations, and government entities.  Materials are available in five different languages along with more information about the campaign at STOP.THINK.CONNECT.
