The IT Trifecta: An Overview of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2019 (Security Intelligence)


It’s that time of year again — the start of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Now in its 16th year, NCSAM is designed to help enterprises and end users better address specific challenges and identify key opportunities for positive change. This year, the month-long messaging focuses on a trifecta of security themes: encouraging personal accountability, developing proactive behavior and drawing attention to careers in cybersecurity. It’s a model of shared responsibility that recognizes a critical shift in security as the line between our online and offline lives becomes indistinguishable. The eventual destination will be a unified approach that treats all data as valuable and all users as cybersecurity stakeholders.
