Gov. Beshear Proclaims October - Cyber Security Awareness Month

FRANKFORT, Ky. (10/6/15) — Encouraging citizens to make sure they take necessary precautions while online and understand good cyber security practices are key reasons Governor Steve Beshear has joined other states in declaring October as Cyber Security Awareness Month in Kentucky.

"Technology is part of our everyday lives and everyone must be vigilant in protecting their personal information," said Gov. Beshear. "Increasingly, more and more state government interactions are available online, which means the Commonwealth Office of Technology is constantly monitoring and using the latest tools available to protect data."

The Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign, a coalition of private companies, nonprofit, government organizations and academic institutions, aims to increase understanding of cyber threats and empower the public to be safer and more secure online.

The Commonwealth Office of Technology is a partner in this nationwide effort. Other partners include the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers.
