October is a month of awareness for many causes, one of which is cyber security. National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a growing global effort among colleges and universities, businesses, government agencies, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals to promote online safety awareness.

People are oftentimes the weakest link when it comes to personal and organizational security vulnerabilities, so now is a great time for you and your colleagues to participate in educational events related to NCSAM.
