National Cyber Security Awareness Month was first started in the early 2000s in the United States by the National Cyber Security Division within Homeland Security, along with the Cyber Security Alliance.
The goal then was to teach how to behave safely online using ’simple’ solutions such as antivirus programs. As Cyber Security Month has spread across borders, the focus has changed somewhat, to ”Our Shared Responsibility”.
America’s Cyber Security Month has become a worldwide campaign which includes: European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) and National Cyber Security Awareness Week in Australia. ECSM’s goal is to raise awareness, change behavior and provide resources that tell how both the population and organizations can secure themselves online. They want to convey the importance of securing information and highlighting the simple solutions out there to protect data, whether personal, financial or professional.
