We are now in the second week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).

A campaign sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, NCSAM is designed to emphasize our shared responsibility in strengthening the security postures of our workplaces, homes and digital lives. This initiative’s targets include entities within the public and private sectors.

At the heart of NCSAM is the belief that only through increased security awareness on the parts of businesses, homes and individuals can we hope to better protect all of us online.

With this in mind, we have gathered expert comments on how to create a cyber security culture at work. We have also explored an information security practitioner’s perspective on what steps users can take to stay safe online.

Now it’s your turn. In observance of NCSAM, we have created the hashtag #CyberAwareTips in an effort to stimulate awareness thinking amongst our readers. Please contribute to the conversation and submit your tip on Twitter or Facebook that explains how we can protect ourselves online.

In the meantime, please enjoy some of the tips we have collected from the broader public and infosec community thus far.
