October is Cyber Security Awareness Month!

The National Cyber Security Alliance has announced that October is “National Cyber Security Awareness Month”. Their slogan for the month is “Protect Yourself Before you Connect Yourself” provides “free and non-technical cyber security and safety resources to the public, so consumers, small businesses and educators have the know how to avoid cyber crime.” The website also includes the top 8 cyber security practices. We will look at each of these practices a bit more closely during the month of October. Stay Safe Online also has cyber safety information split into different sections for home users, K-12 educators, small businesses, and higher education.
