The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announces that October, 2018, is the 15th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), in partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).

According to the National Cyber Security Alliance:

Recognized every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) – #CyberAware – was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure that all Americans have the information they need to stay safer and more secure online.
2018 marks the 15th annual NCSAM, co-led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, the nation’s leading nonprofit, public-private partnership focused on cybersecurity education and awareness. 

Your business depends on information. No matter what your business produces, if it handles information electronically, even if it’s just Excel spreadsheets with financial and accounting information, your business is exposed to threats in the cyber frontier.  

What does this mean to you? What threats are important to your business? How can you find out about them? Start by participating in #cyberaware month. Here is the schedule of online and in-person events, summits and other activities.  Join an online conversation, and attend an in-person session in your area. If you want a more custom assessment or consultation, Shore Cybersecurity is here to help. Contact us at our website.
