Abstinence: The Best Cybersecurity

Friday, October 22, 2010 | 12:56 PM Leave a comment Go to comments

Happy Friday and welcome back, Cybersecurity News readers!  Thanks for sticking with me during my brief hiatus (otherwise known as a European vacation).

I had every intention of keeping you all informed with the latest cybersecurity news during my travels, but with the British on high alert for cyber attack threats, and with Italy racking in a record for mobile cyber attacks, I figured Internet abstinence was probably my best choice for cybersecurity abroad.

…Thus I opted on the Swiss Alps and Roman ruins instead…  (And to my loyal readers, I offer up this link to a few photos of my travels.)

I hope you’ve been enjoying a cyber safe National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. And to recap us all, I’ve included below a list of cybersecurity headlines that you may have missed in my absence.

Stay tuned for upcoming news… And thanks again, Cybersecurity News readers, for your continued support…
