One of the best parts of my position as Intel’s Director of Security Policy and Global Privacy Officer is working with innovative organizations to improve awareness of cyber security and privacy.  It is an honor to serve on the board of directors of one such entity: The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).  Monday is the start of NCSA’s month long effort to educate consumers about what they can do to protect themselves online.  

NCSA is a non-profit public-private partnership focused on empowering digital citizens to stay safer online and protect digital assets.  Coordination of Data Privacy Day (January 28th) is led by NCSA and October is annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).  Over the next 30 days, I will use this blog to promote some of NCSA’s activities and add my perspective to the conversation.  The theme of the 2012 “Our Shared Responsibility,” is intended to remind consumers and businesses that the Internet is a shared resource and we all need to do our part to protect it. 

In addition to checking back at this blog, I encourage you to visit the NCSAM website and get involved.
