This new call to action emphasizes the role each individual plays in maintaining online safety and stresses the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity practices at home, on the go and in the workplace.

“As we approach the 16th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we remind connected technology users that safeguarding the internet is a responsibility we all share,” said Kelvin Coleman, NCSA’s executive director. “As cyberattacks are evolving and becoming more common, NCSAM is a great opportunity for businesses to enhance and share their commitment to cybersecurity with their employees and customers. In addition, NCSAM provides the perfect platform for all internet users to learn more about the steps they can take to protect their private information. This year’s OWN IT. SECURE IT. PROTECT IT. theme will focus on key areas, including individual privacy, consumer devices and e-commerce security.”
