The Secret History of Cybersecurity Awareness Month (And it’s Not-So-Secret Future)

BSN-cybersecurity-campaign-blog-1-image

Have you ever wondered where all those weird holidays come from? Like, who got to decide that April 23rd was National Talk Like Shakespeare Day? Or that Squirrel Appreciation Day would fall on January 21st? Or that the last Friday of every April would be National Hairball Awareness Day? An entire day to make sure that your feline friends aren’t spewing wet clumps of hair on to the floor seems like a waste of time, but do you know what isn’t? An entire month dedicated to cybersecurity. Now that’s a topic worthy of a holiday!

 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month was created by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance in October of 2004. It was launched in an effort to help Americans to be safe in the rapidly growing Internet. Since its inception, Cybersecurity Awareness Month has only grown more important as our lives become increasingly digitized. Many high-ranking US officials have been a part of the event including former DHS Secretaries and former Presidents. We are only one of many industry participants who are taking this month to educate our community on the importance of cybersecurity. College campuses, non-profits, and other organizations frequently join in on the fun as well.

 

This October, we will be participating in Cybersecurity Awareness Month in a big way. We encourage you to enter our Cybersecurity Resource Page and download a free copy of our eBook on Internet Safety. It is important to know the difference between Cybersecurity and Internet Safety. We look forward to sharing exciting content with you this month! Contact us should you have any questions.
