Unicon, Inc., a leading technology consulting firm, today announced that it has become a 2020 Champion of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). Focused on the education ecosystem, Unicon evaluates, designs, implements, and supports learner-centric digital experiences that transform online teaching and learning. In becoming a 2020 NCSAM Champion, Unicon joins a global effort to promote the awareness of online safety and privacy and provide a safer, more secure, and more trusted Internet as a critical component of the Learner Journey.

Held annually in October, NCSAM is a multi-layered and far-reaching campaign among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations and individuals. It was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure all digital citizens have the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online while also protecting personal information. The theme for 2020 is 'Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart,' helping to empower individuals and organizations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace. As an official Champion, Unicon demonstrates its commitment to every facet of the learner experience, including cybersecurity, online safety, and privacy.

NCSAM was co-founded and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It has grown exponentially since its inception, reaching consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, government entities, the military, educational institutions, and young people nationally and internationally. Now in its 17th year, NCSAM continues to build momentum and impact co-led by NCSA and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA).
