National Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month banner

Every October, Microsoft recognizes National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) in the United States through our partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). Microsoft also supports NCSAM worldwide to help all of us foster the concept of digital citizenship and promote standards of appropriate behavior as we become an increasingly digital society.

2013 marks 10 years of raising awareness of online safety and security issues and helping educate people about the best ways to protect their Internet-connected devices. The long-standing theme for NCSAM, "Our Shared Responsibility," emphasizes the role that each of us—individuals, families, schools, organizations, industry, and government—can play in helping to create a safer digital world.

Make time during the month, and throughout the year, to take proactive steps to help safeguard you and your families’ devices and information as you go online. Here’s a list of activities to consider.

Online Safety – STOP. THINK. CONNECT.
