WASHINGTON and NASHUA, N.H., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SnoopWall (http://www.snoopwall.com) the world's first counterveillance security software company, today proclaimed its strong public support for The National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an annual initiative to educate and encourage Americans to learn and do more to ensure individual and collective digital security and privacy.
Organized through the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), the tenth annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is held in October 2013 and is centered on the theme "Stop. Think. Connect." #NCSAM encourages Internet users to learn about possible risks inherent in their online activities; and to make thoughtful, informed decisions that can help to protect them against threats and dangers from cyber criminals and cyber snoops. The NCSA works with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center and many other public and private sector organizations to conduct NCSAM each October and throughout the year to empower consumers, schools, businesses and government agencies to stay safe online.
"SnoopWall is a solid champion of the tenth annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month," said Gary S. Miliefsky, President and Founder of SnoopWall and a founding member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. "While consumers and businesses are more and more dependent on smartphones, tablets and laptops, mobile users are particularly vulnerable to violations of their personal online security and privacy. NCSAM is a very valuable initiative that helps Americans learn more about cyber crime, privacy, application and mobile security, identity and access management."
