National Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

The Internet touches almost all aspects of everyone’s daily life, whether we realize it or not. National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity, provide them with tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase the resiliency of the Nation in the event of a cyber incident.


1. Make sure all of your organization’s computers are equipped with antivirus software and antispyware. This software should be updated regularly.

2. Secure your Internet connection by using a firewall, encrypt information, and hide your Wi-Fi network.

3. Establish security practices and policies to protect sensitive information.

4. Educate employees about cyber threats and how to protect your organization’s data. Hold employees accountable to the Internet security policies and procedures.

5. Require employees to use strong passwords and to change them often.

6. Invest in data loss protection software, use encryption technologies to protect data in transit, and use two-factor authentication where possible.

7. Protect all pages on your public-facing websites, not just the checkout and sign-up pages.
