CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cenzic, a leading provider of application security intelligence to reduce security risk, today announced its support for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an initiative organized every October and designed to promote online safety for businesses, schools, government agencies and the American public.

Cenzic will join NCSA and other champion supporters to engage in the national public awareness campaign, focusing on a different cyber security issue for each week of the month – including mobile security, cyber education, cybercrime, and critical infrastructure security.

"This year's National Cyber Security Awareness Month comes at a time when the world is more interconnected than ever before, and the levels of risk, vulnerabilities, and data theft are at an all-time high," says Bala Venkat, CMO at Cenzic. "Cyber security is not in the hands of any particular individual or entity, but is a shared responsibility – only through education, training and awareness can we be a secure digital society. We are excited to champion this cyber security campaign, reflecting our commitment to securing our customers and ensuring the integrity of their web applications."

Celebrated every October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) was created as a collaborative effort between the US Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. Since its inception in 2003, NCSAM has grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions, and young people across the nation. This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
