WASHINGTON (Sept. 3, 2014) -- October is Army Cybersecurity Awareness Month, our annual campaign to reenergize our focus on cybersecurity policies, practices and training that improve the Army’s overall readiness posture. I’m asked often if the awareness month is still useful given recent media attention of large data breaches and the year-round focus on cybersecurity. My answer from a leader’s perspective: Absolutely! Never underestimate the power of a little awareness. Six months ago, I didn’t know a single person who dumped a bucket of ice water on their head for any reason. Today the #ALSicebucketchallenge, started by a single person has raised millions and global awareness to combat a horrendous and relentless disease.
