As we launch the third week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), we hope you’ll participate by helping promote a safer, more secure and more trusted Internet all month long. We’re making it easy to support NCSAM 2015 by providing materials for each week that you can share at home, at work and school and in the community.
Week 3 focuses on Connected Communities and Families: Staying Protected While We Are Always Connected. Cybersecurity means staying protected in all of the ways we connect, and this week we will share ways you can protect yourself and your family and what to do if you are a victim of a breach or cybercrime. Check out our infographic (which you can also print and share as a poster) and share on social media!
