OUCH! Newsletter – Securing The Generation Gap

Posted on: December 2nd, 2020 by Jalan Cruz


We are excited to announce December’s edition of OUCH! – “Securing The Generation Gap”. Trying to securely make the most of today’s technology can be overwhelming for almost all of us, but it can be especially challenging for family members not as used to or as familiar with technology. Therefore, we wanted to share some key steps to help secure family members who may be struggling with technology and might misunderstand the risks that come with using it. Led by Guest Editor Chris Dale, download and share OUCH! with family, friends and co-workers, and as always translated into over 20 languages.

The New Game Changer for High School Students

Last month SANS launched its largest public service effort to date. CyberStart America will enable up to 100,000 U.S. high school students to play a fun, immersive cybersecurity game where they solve realistic cybersecurity challenges while playing the role of a cyber protection agent.

They will get to play CyberStart Game through the end of February, and students who complete at least 20 percent of the challenges will be eligible to enter a scholarship round where they can win $2,000,000 in scholarships to be used at the colleges they attend.
