DHS Launches National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Challenge


Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano has unveiled DHS’ National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Challenge-a new initiative that calls on cybersecurity experts and individuals across the country to develop innovative new ways to enhance public awareness about the importance of safeguarding America’s computer systems and cyber networks from attacks by terrorists and criminals.

The Challenge invites cybersecurity experts and members of the public alike to submit creative ideas for improving the public’s cybersecurity awareness and cyber literacy. Proposals must be submitted by April 30 via www.dhs.gov/cyberchallenge, and winners will collaborate with the Department to develop and launch the National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign.

For National Cyber Security Awareness Campaign Challenge rules and additional information, visit www.dhs.gov/cyberchallenge.
