October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

October marks the sixth annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. The theme for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2009 is “Our Shared Responsibility” to reinforce the message that all computer users, not just industry and government, have a responsibility to practice good “cyber hygiene” and to protect themselves and their families at home, at work and at school.

Americans can follow a few simple steps to keep themselves safe online. By doing so, you will not only keep your personal assets and information secure but you will also help to improve the overall security of cyberspace.

  1. Identity theft is one of the major crimes involved when we talk about cyberspace. The main reason is that a lot of people are really lax in giving their personal information to others, even if they do not know these people really well. There are things that you need to keep private. Don’t let other people use you to succeed in their criminal acts.
