For the 11th year, this October government, non-profits, the IT industry and local communities across the United States are coming together to celebrate National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), a month-long celebration sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security, the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center to bring awareness to the latest developments in cybersecurity and the importance of ensuring all stakeholders are prepared to protect themselves and their businesses against the ever changing threats of our technology-driven world.
