October is Cybersecurity awareness month. Every single day I notice that there is still a huge need for security awareness. I wanted to do something this year, so in my (not so) youthful enthusiasm I put out this tweet.
I got a lot of good responses and I think there is enough material to fill 31 blogs, now I "just" need to write them. It will be challenging, but I think it's worth it and I really hope it helps people to improve their online security.
I will add a link to all the blogs on this page and I will publish them as well on Twitter with the hashtag #31DaysOfSecurity. Would appreciate if you help me spread the message such that we can reach as many people as possible.
In the meantime stay safe online!
