FBI offers advice during new National Cyber Security Awareness Month
Another initiative from the FBI to increase public awareness of the Cyber Crime problem. This excerpt from Betanews.com lets us know (in case we didn’t). This may be the sort of information we pass on to persons who need to know how our tax dollars are spent, children or Rip van Winkle. Here is the excerpt:
“This October has been declared National Cyber Security Awareness Month, a month in which Americans are encouraged to learn more about the “national security priority” that is the US communications infrastructure.
“Cyber attacks and their viral ability to infect networks, devices, and software must be the concern of all Americans,” President Barack Obama said yesterday. “This month, we highlight the responsibility of individuals, businesses, and governments to work together to improve their own cybersecurity and that of our Nation. We all must practice safe computing to avoid attacks. A key measure of our success will be the degree to which all Americans educate themselves about the risks they face and the actions they can take to protect themselves and our Nation’s digital infrastructure.” “

Seriously, we must all practice “safe computing,” otherwise we will be deemed promiscuous and will get ugly freckles in our faces.
