Arlington, VA (myPressManager.com) October 04, 2012 The Internet Keep Safe Coalition (iKeepSafe) is pleased to announce its support of National Cyber Security Awareness Month and appreciates the National Cyber Security Alliance’s special efforts this month ensuring that our online lives are kept safe and secure. This year’s theme, “Our Shared Responsibility,” emphasizes that the internet is a shared resource and securing it is everyone’s responsibility. Further, the month highlights that if each of us does our part, “together we will be a more resilient and safer digital society.”
National Cyber Security Awareness Month, conducted every October since 2001, is an annual awareness-raising effort that seeks to encourage everyone to protect their networks and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure. NCSA works in collaboration with partners across the country to empower consumers, schools, businesses and government agencies to stay safe online.
In celebration of the month, iKeepSafe will do its part to raise awareness of the importance of cyber security. The organization will be attending the 11th Annual Cyberethics, Cybersafety, and Cybersecurity Conference in College Park, Maryland on October 4th and 5th. In addition, iKeepSafe has officially shown its support for the month and its commitment to cyber security by participating as a National Cyber Security Awareness Month “champion.” As a champion, iKeepSafe recognizes that we all share the responsibility to secure our part of cyberspace and the networks we use.
“iKeepSafe strives to educate families and educators about the importance of cyber security throughout our daily outreach and communication efforts,” said Marsali Hancock, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “We strongly support the National Cyber Security Alliance’s mission, vision and efforts in promoting ‘Our Shared Responsibility’ in celebration of National Cyber Security Awareness Month this October.”
