About National Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month, recognized every October since 2004, is a national public awareness campaign to encourage the protection of computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.  Cybersecurity requires vigilance every day of the year. However, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the primary drivers of NCSAM, coordinate in October to shed a brighter light on what home users, schools, businesses and governments need to do in order to protect themselves, their children, their computers and their data.
