Cyber Security Awareness

Our Shared Responsibility

We lead web based digital lives.

The Internet has become pervasive; we are online at home, school, work, and play.  In addition to the traditional laptop or desktop computer, we now have many more gateways to the Internet.  Mobile devices of all shapes and sizes connect us to increasingly complex and useful tools almost everywhere and at anytime.  Even when we are not directly connected, the Internet supports our everyday lives through our financial transactions, transportation systems, power grids, emergency response systems and a constant flow of communication, to name a few.  This reliance will only increase as digital technology becomes further entwined with how we live.

If we are to achieve the potential of a digital society for robust and widely available content, community, communication, commerce, and connectivity we must protect the resource that makes it possible.

The Internet is a shared resource and securing it is our shared responsibility.

Ultimately, our cyber infrastructure is only as strong as the weakest link.  No individual, business, or government entity is solely responsible for securing the Internet.  Everyone has a role to secure their part of cyberspace, including computers, devices and networks they use.  We all need to understand how our individual actions have a collective impact on cyber security and protecting the Internet.

Our Shared Responsibility means each of us must do our part.  The actions we take may differ based on our personal and professional responsibilities.  However, if each of us does our part - whether it's implementing stronger security practices in our day-to-day online activities, making sure the right tools are in place, raising awareness in the community, educating young people or training employees - together we will be more resistant and resilient, protecting ourselves, our neighbors and our country.
