Yesterday, Acting Secretary Beers was in New York City where he participated in several events and discussed the Department’s work with the private sector to increase cybersecurity, protect critical infrastructure and make the public less vulnerable to cyber crimes.
Acting Secretary Beers began his day with a visit to the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square where he rang the Opening Bell alongside private sector partners.
Acting Secretary Beers and National Protection and Programs Directorate Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity Phyllis Schneck also delivered remarks and participated in a discussion with business leaders on cybersecurity as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month engages public and private sector stakeholders – especially the general public – to create a safe, secure, and resilient cyber environment. This year marks the tenth anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month sponsored by DHS in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center.
