Newsletter #3 2023

Published on: October 08, 2023


First of all, thank you for subscribing and reading the EndpointCave security newsletter.

I feel honored that you will join me on the journey of this bi-weekly Security Newsletter! My goal is to deliver valuable security content directly to you and your inbox.

But I need your help, do you have any valuable content that needs to be shared with the community? Did you create a security blog post or did you find a security-related news item that needs to be mentioned in my upcoming newsletters?

Please send me a message. You can contact me on Twitter (X) or LinkedIn.

October means Security Awareness Month, so a lot of content will be created and published. In the last two weeks, the community has created a lot of content.

First, I want to start with a question. As we all know, techniques will help us to protect ourselves or our users from hackers. But people are still humans and they make mistakes. And that is OK.

I see a lot of companies sending out phishing campaigns with the goal of testing the users.  I do not prefer this method of awareness. I do like to help them to understand cybersecurity with training and help them to recognize a phishing email. and give them a reward if they forward suspicious emails to security.

So it’s security Awareness month and my question is: What are you doing about security awareness?
