For all of those who did not know this is the National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the United States. This is a campaign that aims to have web users protect their computers and their own safety.
It is not even a question whether online gamblers should take part in this campaign, it is a must that everyone who likes to play online casino games online should participate.
As most of you should know, the online gambling industry has the support of several independent companies that are in charge of looking after the standards on security and certify systems once they pass tests. One of the biggest and most reputable of those companies is eCOGRA.
As part of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month we invite all of our readers to double check if the online casinos they play/want to play at are certified and have been audited. Please also make sure that your casino is transparent and has privacy and security policies to protect the players.
Another aspect of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month is to use the web responsibly. If you feel that your online gaming habits are a little bit out of control you might want to take a step back and reflect on it. If you decide that you need help most casinos have restriction mechanisms and you can also call 800 522 4700 or go to www.npcgambling.org
I hope everyone is having a fun and safe National Cyber Security Awareness Month!
