The Griffiss Institute, 725 Daedalian Dr., has joined the growing global effort to promote awareness of online safety and privacy as part of October’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
The National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges, organizations and individuals committed to encouraging people to utilize proper practices to ensure their cybersecurity.
This year’s NCSAM theme is ‘Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.’
“Cyber security doesn’t involve just government and businesses. All your connected devices contain information that cyber criminals would love to get their hands on, such as names, email addresses, and other private information and data,” said Bill Wolf, President of the Griffiss Institute.
“In a connected world, we each have a responsibility to protect ourselves and the people we interact with, and it all starts with understanding cyber security,” the Griffiss Institute president added.
“The GI is committed all year long, and especially during National Cyber Security Awareness Month, to helping empower individuals, parents, kids, small and big business owners, to become more cyber aware,” Wolf added. Now in its 16th year, NCSAM continues to build momentum and impact with the ultimate goal of providing all Americans with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online
As part of Griffiss Institute’s NCSAM efforts, throughout
the month of October, the
organization will post online safety tips and reminders on all its social media profiles and its website, https://www.griffissinstitute.org, as well as take part in online safety Twitter chats, Wolf added.
