“October marks the 13th National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an annual effort led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to ensure everyone has the resources needed to stay safer, more secure and better able to protect their personal information online. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and all individuals and organizations have roles to play in promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet. STOP. THINK. CONNECT. is the global online safety education and awareness campaign to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. The research-based message was created in 2009 by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, nonprofits and government with leadership provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). The U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides the federal government’s leadership for the campaign. NCSA integrates STOP. THINK. CONNECT. into its core initiatives and resources. STOP. THINK. CONNECT. offers a library of resources, including posters, tip sheets, videos and graphics, all available for free to download and share at home, at work and in the community.”-Stay Safe Online
