OUCH is Out - Securely Disposing of Your Mobile Devices

Screen Shot 2016-12-07 at 7.44.48 AMThe December edition of the OUCH! security awareness newsletter is out. For this month we focus on Securely Disposing of Your Mobile Devices. We chose this topic as the holidays is when many people get a new mobile device, leaving them with the challenge of what to do with their old one. It does not matter if you donate your old mobile device to charity, give it to a family member or sell it on eBay, you want to be certain you take some basic security steps first. In this newsletter we cover these steps in simple terms. As always, OUCH! is free to use and translated into over 25 languages. Download now and share this month's OUCH! with your family, friends and coworkers.

In addition, some of you have asked about the OUCH! license, specifically if you can distribute OUCH! as part of your security awareness program to employees, staff, customers or students. You are more than welcome and encouraged to distribute OUCH!, to include from your own website. The only limitation is you cannot modify or sell OUCH! Finally, January 2017 edition of OUCH! will be on Social Engineering and will be published on Wednesday, 11 January.
