Great stuff from the SANS Technology Institute's Johannes B. Ullrich … Cyber Security Awareness Month:
For a few years now, October is designated "National Cyber Security Awareness Month". The target audience of the awareness month effort is mostly consumers. This year's motto is "the Internet is a shared resource and securing it is our Shared Responsibility".
We will feature a special diary each day in October in observance of cyber security awareness month. Realizing that our audience tends to be more technical, we are picking our own theme. This year, we picked "Standards and Security". Many standards have important security components, and we will try to illustrate how particular standards affect current attacks.
