Mailing List Questions
The National Cyber Awareness System is America's first cohesive national cybersecurity system for identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing emerging vulnerabilities and threats. Managed by the US-CERT, the system relays computer security update and warning information to all users. It provides all citizens—from computer security professionals to home computer users with basic skills—with free, timely, actionable information to better secure their computer systems. The National Cyber Awareness System provides valuable cybersecurity information in the form of Alerts, Tips, and Bulletins.
You can sign up to receive Alerts, Tips, and Bulletins, and Current Activity updates through email. Visit the subscription system to subscribe to one or more of the lists.
You can change your email address, unsubscribe, or manage your preferences by clicking the Manage Preferences link in any email you recieve through the subscription service. If you continue to have difficulties, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
