SecurityCoverage Promotes National Cyber Security Awareness Month
The internet is a shared resource and securing it is ‘Our Shared Responsibility’.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa (October 01, 2013)
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), was created as a collaborative effort between the US Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance. Since its inception in 2003, NCSAM has grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions, and young people across the nation.
“NCSAM has played a significant role in educating the public about the very real cyber security risks that we fight every day” said Ed Barrett, SecurityCoverage Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “We are pleased to join the ranks of NCSAM Champions by co-promoting the significance of cyber security and ‘our shared responsibility’ to protect it.”
SecurityCoverage’s month long program will feature a series of articles, educational messages and social media packages that its network of nearly 400 partners can share directly with their customers.
“Our partners provide connectivity for more than 2 million homes,” Barrett said. “Highlighting key messages throughout the month represents a great opportunity for us as an NCSAM Champion to help create a safer internet for everyone.”

“We lead internet connected lives. Cyber Security is the mechanism that maximized our ability to grow commerce, communications, community and content in a connected world. No individual, business, or government entity is solely responsible for securing the internet,” says the site. “Individual actions have a collective impact and when we use the Internet safely, we make it more secure for everyone. If each of us does our part – implementing stronger security practices, raising awareness, educating, and training – together we will be a digital society safer and more resistant to attacks.”
