Every October, Microsoft recognizes National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) in the United States through our partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA). NCSAM was created to help increase awareness of online safety and security issues, and to help educate people about the best ways to protect their computers and other electronic devices.
Microsoft supports NCSAM worldwide, to help foster digital citizenship, a concept that helps prepare and educate all of us for a society full of technology.
Last October, Microsoft helped kick off the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. (STC) campaign by creating a series of STC videos, one of which was honored by the White House and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We also help spread the STC messages via our digital media properties:
This year's theme for NCSAM, "Our Shared Responsibility," emphasizes the role that each of us—individuals, families, schools, organizations, industry, and government—has to help create a safer digital world. In doing our part, Microsoft offers six foundational steps each of us can take to help protect our online safety, devices, information, and families as we learn, explore, and interact online.
