[Micronet] October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Allison Henry

Micronetters,

Please help to get the word out -- October is National Cyber Security
Awareness Month!

The Internet is a shared resource and securing it is *Our Shared
Responsibility*, the theme for 2012 National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

Now is a great time to educate yourselves and others on the importance
of following cyber security best practices. Here are some resources to
help you get started:

Also I will be adding a new cyber security awareness article each week
this month to the Berkeley Security website -- here's Week 1 - Getting
Started: https://security.berkeley.edu/node/350. And if you come across
any really effective or valuable cyber security awareness materials, or
if you have developed your own, please share!

Thanks,
