Cyber Security Awareness Month

I almost missed it, October is Cyber Security Awareness Month!

I was poking around the internet and discovered that I had missed most of Cyber Security Awareness Month but it did lead me to staysafeonline.org website. It looks to be a great resource for businesses and individuals to secure their online presence. The website is loaded with great content, more than I can dig through on a Friday morning. I will have followup posts on content from staysafeonline.org website. I started digging through the website looking at the parents section…take a look at their “Raising Digital Citizens Tip Sheet” to get an idea of the content they offer.

Internet Safety and Security Tips for Parents

The staysafeonline.org’s mission and vision statements provide a clear definition on the sites objectives.

Mission

NCSA’s mission is to educate and therefore empower a digital society to use the Internet safely and securely at home, work, and school, protecting the technology individuals use, the networks they connect to, and our shared digital assets.

Vision

In a climate of persistent threats, securing cyber space is a responsibility we all share.Securing the Internet and our shared global digital assets—cybersecurity—is critical if we are to achieve the potential of an empowered digital society capable of leveraging robust and widely available:

  • content
  • community
  • communication
  • commerce
  • connectivity

NCSA builds strong public/private partnerships to create and implement broad reaching education and awareness efforts to empower users at home, work and school with the information they need to keep themselves, their organizations, their systems, and their sensitive information safe and secure online and encourage a culture of cybersecurity.
