The ISC celebrates next month with a series of best practices and articles related to computer security.

October 2011 – Cyber Security awareness month

QUOTE:  It is that time of the year again, Cyber Security Awareness Month.  Over the last few years we have participated in the October Cyber Security Awareness month (just search the archive for “cyber security awareness month”).  During the month, in addition to our normal diaries, we take a specific topic or theme and publish a diary on the topic.

This year the theme is the “20 Critical Security Controls”. I know what you are thinking, 20 controls 31 days. A number of the controls will easily take a few days to cover.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with the 20 critical security controls, please see this link:
