Extract from Doug Austin’s article “Be Aware, Be Very Aware – of Cybersecurity Awareness Month!”
Tomorrow is October 1t, and the end of the month is Halloween. So, the phrase “be afraid, be very afraid” (a tagline* which came from the 1986 movie The Fly) seems very appropriate for the end of October.
But the phrase “be aware, be very aware” is appropriate for the entire month of October because it’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched by theNational Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in October 2004 as a broad effort to help all Americans stay safer and more secure online. That’s straight from the NCSA website.
