NAMTEK today announced that it has become a Champion of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2014, joining a growing global effort among colleges and universities, businesses, government agencies, associations and non-profit organizations to promote online safety awareness.
Celebrated every October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure everyone has the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online. As an official Champion, NAMTEK recognizes its commitment to cybersecurity and online safety.
“NAMTEK is proud to help with this important effort,” said Darrin Maggy (CISSP), NAMTEK Director of Strategic Operations. “We’ve been an NCSAM Champion for the past few years and will continue to support this important work professionally, with our families, and in our communities,” added Darrin.
Coordinated and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Department of Homeland Security, NCSAM has grown exponentially since its inception, reaching consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions and young people across the nation and internationally. This year marks the 11th year of NCSAM.
“The Champion Program is a vital part of making National Cyber Security Awareness Month a success each year,” said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance. “We are thankful to our 2014 Champion organizations for their support and commitment to our shared responsibility of promoting cyber security and online safety awareness.”
As part of NAMTEK’s NCSAM efforts, we will continue to educate our customer’s and at-risk community members about the importance of safe and mindful computing practices.
