National Cyber Security Awareness Campaign Challenge a Huge Accomplishment

The USA Homeland Security Department’s National Cyber Security Understanding Campaign Challenge was a huge success, with extra than 80 security plans submitted with the aim of accelerating awareness relating to threats to cyber reliability.

Out of the above 80 submitted entries, eight were chosen to obtain awards at a wedding ceremony in the White House just lately. One noteworthy proposal was a 5k run referred to as “Trot Against Bots”, which will aims to intentionally trigger traffic jams to present the effect of reliability problems triggering disruptions in internet traffic, bagging the Best Creative Approach merit. Cisco Systems, Inc., as well got a nod for his or her “Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Responsibility” Publicity and Marketing strategy, which highlights the value of using cyberspace responsibly since an individual compared to the shared effort of making the internet a safe place for most.

Another notable proposal was the “Think Before You Click” campaign from Deloitte & Touche, LLP, which in turn won the Best Well-known and Overall Structure. Because the name suggests, the campaign aims to suppress the pervasive habit of clicking links before examining the possible content of the website to get seen or the file to get downloaded.

Other winners incorporate: Best Local/Community Plan — Securing Our eCity North park and MyMaine Privacy; Ideal Individual Plan – “Cybersecurity Starts Here: Home, University and Main Street” by simply Melissa Short; and Perfect Educational Plan – Pa State University’s “CyberLink Games”.

Homeland Security plans to make use of the winning ideas and integrate them to their National Cybersecurity Awareness Plan.
