October OUCH! Newsletter - Something Special for #CyberAware Month

OUCH-Logo02-LowResOUCH! is a free security awareness newsletter published every month in over 25 languages. Each edition focuses on a specific topic on how anyone can securely make the most of today's technology. In the past ten years OUCH! has become the world's most trusted security awareness newsletter, from personal use at home to the largest organizations in the world. For this October, also known as National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we are doing something different. As part of the NCSAM Planning Kit, October's edition of OUCH! is on Helping Others Secure Themselves. Instead of explaining to the reader how to be secure, we enable the reader to go out and secure others by promoting five key security behaviors. There are millions of people around the world who feel comfortable with technology. This newsletter creates a global network of security ambassadors who can help others by sharing these five key points. Download this month's OUCH! with you friends, family 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!
