CSAM Week 1 Recap
We kicked off the tenth annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month with the official theme of ‘Shared Responsibility’. We all succeed by furthering the education and awareness of the community we live as a whole, not just the technical folks. Adrien talked earlier this week about how we at the Internet Storm Center are all about logs, and the basis for much of our work has always been the Dshield project. The Dshield database of information is provided by everyone who contributes, thus supporting the efforts of the ISC.
The other half of the equation for the ‘Shared Responsibility’ of the Internet Storm Center is the Handlers. The Handlers of the ISC are all volunteers, with day jobs to take up the other half of our brains not committed here. Of course the ISC is not the only volunteer opportunity that we as security professionals can actively engage to bring our expertise and experience together to share amongst ourselves and others. One that comes to mind that is active in many areas across the globe is the Information Systems Security Association.
Where else can we help? Submit your comments to us below, and help spread the word!
