NASCIO Champions National Cyber Security Awareness Month

AUSTIN, Tex., Wednesday, October 4 – The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is once again observing National Cyber Security Awareness Month by being an official cybersecurity champion. For the 14th consecutive year, the Department of Homeland Security's Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center and the National Cybersecurity Alliance are promoting cyber security awareness, safety and security online. Once again, NASCIO is partnering with these organizations to officially show support and promote a safer, more secure and trusted Internet.
"NASCIO advocates that cybersecurity is business risk, not just a technology issue," said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director. "NASCIO applauds states for keeping online safety and security in the forefront by hosting events and highlighting their own state programs and resources. NASCIO will continue to support states and state CIOs for their efforts during Cybersecurity Awareness Month."
