Though we consider every month Cyber Security Awareness Month, October has been designated to bring attention to ways everyone can protect personal and business digital assets. This is the eighth year the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MSIAC), have sponsored the month-long campaign with government and industry organizations joining forces to raise awareness and offer strategies to keep your digital life safer. Several flagship activities will be held throughout this month kicking off with the October 7th campaign launch in Michigan. Here are a few links to resources and activities you can use to raise awareness in your organization:

Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center Cyber Security Month Toolkit[1] includes customizable posters and other materials.
