October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility.
Are you doing your part?
  •  96 percent of Americans feel a personal responsibility to be safer and more secure online.
  •  93 percent believe their online actions can protect not only friends and family but also help to make the Web safer for everyone around the world.
  •  When asked why they don’t always do all the things they can or should do to stay safer online, Americans said they simply lacked the information or knowledge (28 percent) – a surprising finding that surpassed  other hurdles often cited by the media. Only 12 percent said online safety was too expensive, while just 5 percent said they were too busy to take the extra step.
