Cyber Security Month

Yahoo! News reported Congress on Friday declared October "National Cyber Security Awareness Month" as a not-for-profit group composed of government agencies and big-name technology firms geared up for a long-term campaign to ease growing consumer fears of the Internet.... For October's month-long effort, the NCSA has revamped its StaySafeOnline Web site, is running a new television public service announcement dubbed "Stop. Think. Click," and will host awareness programs at more than 30 colleges and universities. "User education will always play a role, no matter how devious phishers or other criminals become," said Teixeira. "It takes a combination of changing consumer behaviors and technology to fight the problem."

Check out the Web Site. It contains a lot of good information.
