For many countries around the world, October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, when participating governments and private industry sponsor advocacy campaigns to promote cyber awareness, and provide the information and resources for us all to be more safe and secure online. Cisco is a founding member of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and a Champion Sponsor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the U.S.
Here in the third week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with NCSA Executive Director, Michael Kaiser to discuss the trends and challenges we’re seeing today, and how we can all prepare to be more cyber resilient tomorrow. Our discussion expanded on some of the thoughts I shared in my blog leading up to this year’s Cyber Security Awareness Month.
We welcome you to listen to our podcast, see the show notes for links to more information, and join the conversation. Together, businesses of all sizes, governments, educational institutions and consumers alike can do their part to build a safer and more secure internet. It’s up to all of us, and awareness and education is a great place to start.
