National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2014 Is Here!
Today marks the beginning of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), celebrated every October since 2004. NCSAM began as a collaborative effort between government and industry to provide people with the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. Since its inception, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance have led NCSAM, and these efforts have grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions, and young people across the United States and internationally. NCSA, APWG, and DHS also co-lead STOP. THINK. CONNECT., the global cyber security education and awareness campaign.
Celebrate Data Privacy Day 2014 on January 28
January 28 promises to be the most widely recognized Data Privacy Day since its first observation in 2008.
This, of course, is one effect of the many stories over the past year that has put data privacy in headlines across the world. These stories have reinvigorated old debates, and prompted new questions, about the increasingly complex relationship between individuals, online data they create or is about them, and how data is protected and shared.
