October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). A collaboration between the US Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, the NCSAM initiative has been working for 15 years to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity for the public and businesses alike.
October 5th is National Do Something Nice Day, celebrated both in the United States and in many countries around the world. Similar to Random Acts of Kindness Day, it encourages people to literally do something nice.
Of course, we should be doing nice things for others every day of the year – hopefully without having to think about it. But with busy lives and many demands on our time, we often forget to slow down and show kindness and appreciation to others.
