National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Every year, millions of consumers fall victim to cybercrime. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, in 2014 consumers lost more than $800 million from scams initiated through the web. The Internet has become one of the most popular tools used to commit fraud and criminals are becoming more and more sophisticated with their hacking techniques.
National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)- observed every October as a national campaign- was created as a collaborative effort between public and private sector sponsors who share a concern about protecting the public from Internet threats. Organized by the National Cyber Security Alliance, a strong focus continues every year to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.
In honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we offer resources developed by the American Bankers Association and the National Cyber Security Alliance to help raise consumer awareness.
