The *New* Security Awareness Newsletter - OUCH!

I'm very excited to announce the new and improved OUCH! Security Awareness newsletter. As some of you may know, for over six years now SANS has been publishing the OUCH! newsletter as a free security awareness resource. OUCH! is published every month and covers a new security awareness topic designed to educate ordinary computer users. You are free to share these newsletters with family and friends or distribute them in your own organization.

We are very proud of the work the OUCH! team has done. However our goal at the SANS Securing The Human team is to take this tremendous resource and make it even amore valuable for you and your organization. We just released our new January edition on secure hard drive wiping and disposal, you can see the changes for yourself. The biggest change is that we are moving to .pdf format, making it simpler for you to distribute and share with others. Also we designed the newsletter to be simpler for end users to read and understand the content. Finally we are also bringing in SANS instructors as Guest Editors, these subject matter experts assist with each newsletter. Sign up for the OUCH! Security Awareness newsletter or access the archives here. If you have any suggestions of your own on how to improve OUCH!, or you would like to share how you use it in your organization, please shoot me an email, I would love to hear from you.
