Nuspire Networks endorses Department of Homeland Security sponsored program

Commerce, MI - November 10th 2010
October marks the seventh annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month, sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Nuspire joined the program to help the DHS promote network security practices and awareness. The 2010 Data Breach Investigations Report conducted by Verizon & the United States Secret Service showed that 85% of network attacks were not considered highly difficult. In most cases industry recommended security awareness and prevention could have greatly reduced the likelihood of a data breach. The report also showed that 61% of breaches were discovered by a third party.

Nuspire is a Managed Security Service Provider and has been providing the information and services needed to properly protect customer networks for over a decade. When presented with the opportunity to not only support but also promote the DHS National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Nuspire was eager to help.

Pat Kanai, one of Nuspire’s Security Operations Center managers, is excited to move forward with the program.“Nuspire has always been a leader in the managed security industry and has helped promote network security awareness.We are proud and honored to endorse and support the Department of Homeland Security and the NCSAM."

About National Cyber Security Awareness Month
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2004, is a national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the primary drivers of NCSAM, coordinate to shed a brighter light in October on what home users, schools, businesses and governments need to do in order to protect their computers, children, and data.
