October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)!

For the past 15 years, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) have collaborated on the NCSAM effort to bring cybersecurity awareness and resources to everyday Americans. Their efforts promote and emphasize both an overarching theme and key messages.

Follow the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #CyberAware and tweet @ISSALansingMI with what you/your company is doing to promote cybersecurity awareness this month!
