October is National Cyber Security Awareness month. Maya, the Information Security Director for Linden Lab (the creators of Second Life and Sansar), invited me to meet with her in her new experience, a recreation of the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra, India:
She explained that this beautiful experience is the setting for a series of cyber security events taking place in Sansar, as part of National Cyber Security Awareness month.
The National Cyber Security Alliance (the organization behind National Cyber Security Awareness month), a non-profit founded in 2001, is a public-private partnership, working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), private sector sponsors (founding sponsors included Symantec, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, and McAfee), and nonprofit collaborators to promote cybersecurity awareness for home users, small and medium-sized businesses, and primary and secondary education. For more information and tips on how you can improve your cybersecurity, please visit the Stop. Think. Connect. website.
The first event is on October 1st at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time/Sansar Time at The Taj experience, with a panel of speakers on cyber security. Everyone is welcome! Here is Maya’s tweet promoting the event.
