National Cyber Security Awareness Month is an annual effort to increase awareness and prevention of online security problems, spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) promotes and participates in the annual campaign each October, joining forces with a range of organizations from the public and private sector to expand cybersecurity awareness on campuses across the country. In addition to campus security awareness efforts, there are many examples of community based security awareness and education initiatives that coordinate events and activities during the month of October and throughout the year.
