OASYS has become an NCSA Champion for promoting cyber security during the month of October. NCSA is a nonprofit organization with a mission to educate and empower everyone to use the Internet safely and securely at home, work and school.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is one of NCSA’s key initiatives. NSCA partners with the Department of Homeland Security and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center as a primary driver of the mont- long campaign, now in its seventh year. NCSAM is a multi-faceted effort to disseminate security messages and information through grassroots, traditional and social media channels. In 2010, NCSA’s efforts alone (not including partner activities) reached an estimated 175,000,000 people through media and other activities.
