National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), now in its tenth year, is an annual awareness-raising effort that seeks to encourage everyone to protect their networks and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.  This October, take some time to educate yourself and others about today’s cybersecurity issues and tomorrow’s potential hazards.  NCSAM is also a good reason to learn and help others learn about all of the other facets of digital citizenship, so our children and our selves have safe, secure, and productive online experiences.  The NCSAM website, hosted by the National Cyber Security Alliance, has a variety of educational resources about cybersecurity and the “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign.  You can learn more about digital citizenship, safety, literacy, and ethics right here at Cable in the Classroom.
