Our mission is to support local government efforts to effectively serve their residents, students, and employees through the use of technology.

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month serves as a reminder of our shared responsibility when it comes to safeguarding our online infrastructure at home and work. Now in its 17th year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and public and private partners. These partners include the Commonwealth, which designates October as Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month.
