With the ghosts, goblins and mini chocolate bars, another holiday of sorts is being celebrated this month: National Cyber Security Awareness. October is the time the higher powers spread public engagement and education about cybersecurity.
This marks the 11th annual year of the event, which is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security, the National Cyber Security Alliance, and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center. “Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. Every one of us must practice basic cybersecurity because an intrusion into one computer can affect an entire network,” said secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, in a prepared statement.
To celebrate, event organizers suggest a different activity for each business day in October, such as adding an auto signature highlighting the event to your email, writing a blog post about it or posting a message on social media. The month has four core focuses:
  • Week one promotes online safety.
  • Week two is for the secure development of information technology products.
  • Week three covers critical infrastructure and the Internet of Things.
  • Week four is about protecting small and medium businesses.
And the last week (there are five in October) deals with cybercrime and law enforcement. Boo!
