Security Awareness Blog

Business and home computer users are quickly adopting a "security aware" culture in response to the rising amount of internet security problems.

A new tool in this fight is a blog affectionately called "Security Awareness for Ma, Pa and the Corporate Clueless."

Blog regulars find up-to-date security information and tips from The Security Awareness Company team and commentaries from other top experts in the Information Security Industry.

"The response has been phenomenal," said Winn Schwartau, president of The Security Awareness Company (Interpact Inc.). "We created an entertaining security awareness portal to educate end-users and it apparently struck a chord. The message is really spreading fast."

The Security Awareness blog has an Atom formatted XML site feed for syndication and news readers. The blog also has a convenient email update for opt-in subscribers, which is normally sent twice a week, Schwartau added.

Tony Bradley, CISSP and About.com Guide for Internet/Network Security, strongly believes in the concept of empowering end-users to help battle computer security problems. "The Security Awareness Blog helps address one of the biggest security concerns facing the Internet-connected world - ignorance," Bradley said. "There is a constant barrage of new threats from spam, spyware, phishing scams, viruses, worms, vulnerabilities, etc. Corporate networks have network and security administrators to stay informed and take proactive steps to guard against these threats, but home users need resources such as this to get simple information about complex threats and learn what they need to know to shield themselves from those threats as well."

Another Security Awareness Blog reader is Harry Waldron, Windows Security Expert with One Beacon Insurance and fellow blogger. "To borrow from CARE's great theme, you can sum up security awareness in this manner: Give me a patch and you protect me for a day - but teach me security and you help protect me for a lifetime," Waldron said. "To me, security awareness training is just as important as automated protection safeguards in an organization's security program."

Founded by Winn Schwartau, The Security Awareness Company (Interpact, Inc.), offers a range of information security services for today's organizations, both government and commercial. Interpact assists in securing, protecting and maintaining information technology systems and the integrity of client and proprietary resources. We focus on the people, not the technology.
