October is Cyber Security Awareness Month   10/1/2014

The Internet is part of everyone's life, every day.  We use the Internet at work, home, for enjoyment, and to connect with those close to us.  

However, being constantly connect brings increased risk of theft, fraud, and abuse.  No country, industry, community, or individual is immune to cyber risks.  As a nation, we face constant cyber threats against our critical infrastructure and economy.  As individuals, cyber security risks can threaten our finances, identity, and privacy.  Since our way of life depends on critical infrastructure and the digital technology that operates it, cyber security is one of our country's most important national security priorities, and we each have a role to play - cyber security is a shared responsibility.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cyber security and increasing the resiliency of the nation in the event of a cyber incident.
