October 2010 marks the seventh annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This year’s theme —Our Shared Responsibility—reflects two facts about cybersecurity:
1. The cybersecurity threat has become one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face. America’s competitiveness and economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on effective cybersecurity. Every business, not-for-profit, school, government organization and individual is at risk.
2. Every Internet user has a role to play in securing cyberspace and ensuring the safety of ourselves, our families, and our communities online.
Cybersecurity Awareness Month is sponsored by the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA)—a nonprofit dedicated to fostering a culture of cybersecurity—along with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, a cybersecurity prevention and protection collaboration for state and local governments.
