National Cyber Awareness System:
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.
