National Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is observed every October.  It was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.

With recent legislation and support from the White House, cybersecurity is continuously a popular topic of discussion and rightfully so. More specifically, there is even stronger focus on consumers and their cyber safety. Everyone at every age is a consumer, and thus this year each theme will focus on the consumer and his/her needs regarding cybersecurity and safety.

October is an excellent opportunity to bring cyber security awareness to the forefront, but the Office of Information Security Services remains steadfast throughout the year at keeping your data confidential.  Even with software tools, and a team of certified security engineers, we need you to take on the responsibility of keeping data safe as well.  We encourage you to learn about measures you can take in protecting data. The Information Technology Knowledge Base is a great place to start. It provides a wealth of information.
