March OUCH is Out - Windows XP

OUCH is a free, monthly security awareness newsletter developed by SANS Securing The Human and community volunteers. Our goal is to provide Ordinary Computer Users (OCUs) simple and actionable information on how to protect themselves online. Every month, led by a Guest Editor Subject Matter Expert, we cover a new topic in 1,000 words or less and translate that into over 20 languages. For March, we selected the topic of Windows XP, specifically how Microsoft will end support for it next month. We felt this topic was very important, as surprisingly almost 30% of computers still use Windows XP today. We encourage you to download, share and distribute OUCH with your friends, family and co-workers. Organizations are welcome to distribute OUCH as part of their security awareness program. As always, you can find OUCH at the URL below.
