October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), and the The Reynolds Company will help raise awareness as a champion. Throughout October we will post features that will make you cyber aware.
About National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Since 2004, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) has represented a collaborative effort between government, nonprofit and industry to ensure that all Americans have the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), NCSAM has grown exponentially – reaching consumers and organizations nationwide and encouraging all internet users to be #CyberAware.
Today, NCSAM is part of the nation’s cultural fabric – sharing space in October alongside Halloween and pumpkin spiced lattes – with industry, schools, government, nonprofits and individuals nationwide participating in the month as Champions to officially
show their support.
Our Shared Responsibility
NCSAM’s annual overarching theme is “Our Shared Responsibility” because no individual, business or government entity is solely responsible for securing the internet, and everyone must play a role in protecting their part of cyberspace, including the devices and networks they use.
If everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer, more resistant from attacks and more resilient if an attack occurs.
