The month’s primary goal is to provide Internet users and businesses with the information and tools they need to be safer and more secure online, including education about how to protect personal information in today’s highly-connected world. Everyone can join in and be a part of the something big by becoming a NCSAM 2017 Champion. Hundreds of organizations and individuals have officially signed on as champions to support the month. NCSAM Champions strengthen and boost the greater effort by spreading the word and host NCSAM partner events about online safety at home, at work and in the community.

NCSAM 2017 kicked off on Oct. 1 with a strong reminder for all digital citizens to: STOP: make sure security measures are in place; THINK: about the consequences of your actions and behaviors online; and CONNECT: and enjoy the Internet. The rest of the month's themes are: Cybersecurity in the Workplace is Everyone's Business; Today's Predictions for Tomorrow's Internet; and The Internet Wants You: Consider a Career in Cybersecurity.
