October Is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Can you believe it’s already October? We have to wait until the 31st to celebrate Halloween, but October 1st kicked off “National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)”.

National Cyber Security Alliance, in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, runs this annual campaign in an effort to “engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives to raise awareness about cybersecurity, provide them with tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase the resiliency of the Nation in the event of a cyber incident.” You can check out more about National Cyber Security Awareness Month and the weekly themes on the Department of Homeland Security website.

At DirectDefense, we strive for cyber security awareness every day, and we want to pass that awareness on to our customers. We invite you to become more aware of your cyber security by joining us at the following events:
