October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

For the past 11 years, the Department of Homeland Security, National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center have campaigned to educate the public on practicing basic “cyber hygiene” using cyber security best practices and maintaining situational awareness. Each October is a reminder that we must all be champions for a more resilient national cyber infrastructure. Click here for related resources.
