Saint Leo champions National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Saint Leo University has announced its commitment to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), held annually in October, by signing on as a “NCSAM Champion” and joining a growing global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy.

NCSAM is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, and individuals committed to this year’s NCSAM theme of  “Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.” which encourages everyone to #BeCyberSmart through cybersecurity best practices.

Now in its 16th year, NCSAM continues to build momentum toward the ultimate goal of providing all Americans with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online.

Saint Leo University is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“Cybersecurity is important to the success of all businesses and organizations. NCSA is proud to have such a strong and active community helping to encourage proactive behavior and prioritize cybersecurity in their organizations,” said Kelvin Coleman, executive director, NCSA.
