Since 2004, the President designates October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS)—in coordination with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC)—supports this designation by proactively advancing preparedness through increased awareness and information sharing. Now in its 11th year, National Cyber Security Awareness Month promotes cybersecurity through events and initiatives.
As a partner in the DHS Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign, NACo is proud to promote NCSAM and the importance of online safety.
Throughout the month of October NACo will be highlighting the issue of cybersecurity in County News, on the NACo website and on the NACo social media channels. 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.
