October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). NSCAM is a collaborative effort between DHS and its public and private partners-including the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)-to raise awareness about the vital role cybersecurity plays in the lives of U.S. citizens. US-CERT will be participating in NCSAM through weekly posts in the Current Activity section of the US-CERT website. Over the course of the month, these will touch on

  • basic online safety,
  • cybersecurity at work,
  • protecting personal information,
  • careers in cybersecurity, and
  • cybersecurity and critical infrastructure.

Users and administrators are encouraged to review the Stay Safe Online NCSAM page and the Stay Safe Online NCSAM Events page for additional information and details on NCSA events.
