The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) have designated each October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The security of the Internet is dependant on each one of us. We must all do our share in protecting the computers and networks that we use. This year's theme "Our Shared Responsibility" focuses on the steps that each one of us should follow to protect ourselves on the Internet.
President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano both speak of the significance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month & the importance securing our critical infrastructure by each of us doing our part to protect our computers, networks and ourselves from digital threats.
