October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Dana Halvorson and Erin Prendergast 

Get ready for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), which is observed every October. It was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. 2018 marks the 15th year of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Cybersecurity is especially important to members as the healthcare industry is expected to remain one of the most targeted sectors by cyber attackers.

NCSAM 2018 also marks the 8th anniversary of the STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ campaign. Each year, NCSAM highlights the overall message of STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ and the capstone concepts of the campaign, like “Keep a Clean Machine,” “Protect Your Personal Information,” “Connect with Care,” “Be Web Wise,” “Be a Good Online Citizen,” “Own Your Online Presence” and “Lock Down Your Login.”
