October has traditionally been National Cyber Security Awareness Month, or at least it has been since 2003. Established by the US Department of Homeland Security in conjunction with the National Cyber Security Alliance, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is intended to promote tips and best practices to help people better protect themselves.

We will be doing a number of things to support NCSAM including posting hints, tips and information in blogs, tip of the day on social media including Facebook and Twitter (@ixiacom).

We’ll gather everything we do for NCSAM here on this page.

NCSAM is broken up into 5 Weekly Topics:

We analyze the impacts of these new trends in our 2017 Security Report, including examinations of the shifting environment of network security, how security reach is expanding, new threats, and new areas of vulnerability. Download the Ixia 2017 Security Report to learn more.
