July OUCH! Newsletter - Spear Phishing

This month's edition of the OUCH! security awareness newsletter is out, for July we discuss Spear Phishing. We choose spear phishing as our topic because it is becoming more and more common, we felt it important that people understand the concept and term. In addition, we wanted people to understand how to protect themselves, and understand that the more personal information they post about themselves, the easier they make it for bad guys to craft targeted spear phishing emails. Big shouts out to SANS Instructor Lenny Zeltser for being Guest Editor. Also we would like to thank our volunteer translators. Remember, OUCH! is an all volunteer effort, without community help we could not make this possible.

As always, you can find the latest version of OUCH!, the translated versions and all archives at the OUCH! website. Download OUCH! and share with your family, friends and co-workers.
