Cyber Security Awareness Month- A fight against all odds

We as human like to stay connected with our close and dear ones may whatever be the medium. And internet being the mother of all communication channels in the current shrinking world has become a vital part in our daily life. Due to the overutilization of internet in the present scenario, it is now under the greatest risk of threats life cyber fraud, information theft and unethical abuse of the system breaches. The vulnerabilities that the internet is showing everyday have opened an ocean of opportunities for the cyber criminals. To fight this; probably ever going battle, a need for spreading awareness on the issues and challenges has given rise to the concept called Cyber Security Awareness Month.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (Commonly called NCSAM) was started by the United States of America in 2004 under the sponsorship provided by the National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) within the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA, a non-profit organization). Each year NCSAM is observed in the month of October to encourage observance and fortification by all the computer users. Looking at the growing need and encouragement for a cause as such, various European countries have started to adopt this in their culture as well.

Ever since the inception of CSAM, we at SCIT have been the only institutional body to perceive this each year around India. The SCIT family has been the only vigilante to spread the awareness with the help of their sponsors and the participants by conducting events on a national level and observing it in the campus on a particular day to make it a bigger success. This year being the 12th year of the episode, SCIT is back with larger than life events to fight the greater battle.
