Cybersecurity Awareness Months plans underway

Plans for the 11th annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month are underway at the Department of Homeland Security. DHS will partner up with the National Cyber Security Alliance to offer different events each week catered for federal agencies, individuals, and private companies. Week One will focus on the basics of cybersecurity. Starting in Week Two the topics get a little more specific. You can learn about how to develop more secure IT products, including cloud systems, and in Week Four the theme is cybersecurity for small and medium-sized businesses. DHS and the National Cyber Security Alliance hope the outreach will strengthen and build cybersecurity best practices for both private companies and federal agencies.
