October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)

  • 1 Oct 2015
  • 31 Oct 2015

As a partner in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign, the National CyberWatch Center is proud to promote NCSAM and the importance of online safety.

Throughout the month, we will highlight the issue of cybersecurity on our website, in our newsletter, and in our social media posts (FacebookTwitter). We hope you will join our efforts to promote this issue. Online safety and security are shared responsibilities; together we can positively impact our online community.

Please take these simple actions to help keep you, your identity, and your information safer online: 

  • Set strong passwords and don’t share them with anyone.
  • Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you post online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing information widely.
  • Be cautious about what you receive or read online – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
