National Cyber Security Alliance

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
