About Cyber Security Awareness Month

Each and every one of us needs to do our part to make sure that our online lives are kept safe and secure. That’s what Cyber Security Awareness Month—observed in October 2012—is all about!


Individuals, organizations, and communities throughout the world are gearing up to promote Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM) and let others know that all of us have a role in protecting our digital lives. Many CSAM participants across the globe will be doing their part by posting safety and security tips on social networks, educating their customers and employees, engaging in traditional media, displaying posters, posting tips, holding events, and much more.

Team Matrix has endorsed Stay Safe Online and joined hands to spread the word about information security. Team Matrix is one of the National Cyber security Awareness Month Champions ( We do not intend to change the world, but we definitely want to make the cyber space a better place to live!

If you are concerned about making the Internet safer and more secure for everyone, we invite you to become an active participant in Cyber Security Awareness Month. Everyone can do something—even if you have less than one hour to devote to this effort!

Why CSAM is So Important

We lead Web-based, digital lives. From personal computers, smartphones, and tablets, e-book readers, to working, shopping, and social networking, virtually every aspect of our lives touches the digital world. Even when we are not directly connected to the Internet, this vast worldwide connection of computers, data, and websites supports our everyday lives through financial transactions, transportation systems, healthcare records, emergency response systems, personal communications, and more.

This reliance increases as digital technology advances and high speed Internet access becomes more widespread. Yet, if we are to maximize the convenience, speed, and future potential of a digital society, we must protect the resource that makes it possible.

The Internet is a shared resource and securing it is Our Shared Responsibility, the theme for 2012 Cyber Security Awareness Month.

No individual, business, or government entity is solely responsible for securing the Internet. Everyone has a role in securing their part of cyberspace, including the devices and networks they use. Individual actions have a collective impact and when we use the Internet safely we make it more secure for everyone. If each of us does our part—implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating young people, training employees—together we will be a more resilient and safer digital society.
