Governor Steve Bullock recognizes October as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Maintaining the Security of Cyberspace is a Shared Responsibility
October 1, 2018
I am pleased to recognize October as "National Cyber Security Awareness Month" in the state of Montana.
I commend the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) for their combined efforts in promoting cyber awareness through guidance for government and businesses. Their work in promoting innovation, strengthening cybersecurity investment and enhancing resilience across all sectors has continued to grow and plays an impactful role in encouraging awareness. Maintaining the security of cyberspace is a shared responsibility in which each of us has a critical role to play, and awareness of computer security essentials will improve the security of Montana’s information infrastructure and economy.

Thank you for all your hard work and I encourage Montanans to acknowledge October 2018 as "National Cyber Security Awareness Month."
