A national campaign, National Cyber Security Awareness Month is focused on educating the American public, businesses, schools and government agencies on ways to ensure a safer online experience, thus contributing to a safer Internet ecosystem overall.

“I challenge everyone in Washington to observe National Cyber Security Awareness Month this October, by following the proper steps to stay safe online — for their own protection and for the protection of our nation’s critical infrastructure,” said McKenna, who discusses cyber security with businesses and individuals as part of his 14-city Guard it! Washington identity theft prevention tour. “I make sure to keep my anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall software updated on a regular basis to help protect my online identity and to make sure hackers aren’t using my computer to attack others. I commend the National Cyber Security Alliance, Microsoft and the One Economy Corporation for their work to educate people about this important national safety issue.”
