OUCH! December Edition – Lock Down Your Login

Posted on: December 6th, 2017 by
SANS Ouch! - The Monthly Security Awareness Newsletter for Everyone


We are excited to announce the December issue of OUCH! This month, led by Guest Editor Tiffany Schoenike, we cover Lock Down Your Login. Numerous reports, analysis and findings all point to the same conclusion. One of the most effective steps you can take to protect your online lives is enable two-factor authentication whenever possible. We are thrilled to have Tiffany help us with this edition of OUCH! as she led the national Lock Down Your Login campaign for the United States last year. Share OUCH! with your family, friends, and coworkers or use it as part of your security awareness program.

Once a year, every year we take a snapshot of the security awareness community to create an actionable report you can use to benchmark and improve your security awareness program. To do that, we need your help in completing the annual survey. So why should you take the survey? Key benefits to you include

  • Get entered in a raffle to win the iPad of your choice.
  • Get early access and regular updates to the analysis of the data and an early copy of the final report.
  • Knowledge that you helped make a difference.
  • A new interface that actually makes surveys fun!

So, if you are involved in running your organization’s security awareness program, please take four minutes of your time and take the annual Security Awareness Survey.
