MamaBear Recognizes October as Cyber Security Awareness Month


Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2013 -- October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and the makers of MamaBear Family Safety App are helping raise awareness about the importance of cyber safety.

According to, National Cyber Security Awareness Month was created ten years ago as a way for government and industry "to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online … Cybersecurity is the mechanism that maximizes our ability to grow commerce, communications, community and content in a connected world."

"We take responsibility to help make parents and families aware of cyber safety," said MamaBear president Robyn Spoto, a bona fide MamaBear with two curious, active boys of her own. "So we decided the tenth anniversary of NCSAM is as good a time as any to share with the world the importance of keeping children and families safe online.”

It is especially important to reach our children with guidance on how to keep their information safe. Parents can help their children become smarter, savvier internet citizens by teaching them about cyber security during the month of October and year round.

While teaching them about cyber security is crucial in this day and age, it is also important to use a family safety app like MamaBear to monitor their online and social media behavior to ensure that they are safe from online predators and bullies until they are mature enough to protect themselves.

The MamaBear team posted a blog about NCSAM on their website.
