Recognizing the importance of cyber security awareness, President Obama designated October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Now in its 12th year, NCSAM is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its public and private partners, including the National Cyber Security Alliance, to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security and individual cyber hygiene.

Over the next three weeks, Douglas County will recognize the fifth anniversary of the Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign, a national public awareness campaign aimed at increasing Americans’ understanding of cyber risks and empowering everyone to be safer online. We hope to reinforce cyber security as a "shared responsibility."
