Every year since 2003 October has been recognized as National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and it is now in its 18th year. Over the years the line between our online and offline lives has become indistinguishable. In these tech-oriented times, our homes, workplaces, economic prosperity and nation’s security are impacted by the internet. Internet has become an indispensable part of our lives which encourages us to be more well-versed with cyber security.
