AboutDFIR Content Update 10/09/2021

Over the last year with the new virtual options for SANS Summits, I’ve started attending a few and each time I’ve saved the links I could from the Slack before it goes down at night. Yesterday was the last day of the SANS Threat Hunting Summit so I have a new start.me board full of links for you to view if you’re interested! SANS Threating Hunting Link List.

Just a few site updates this round!

AboutDFIR stickers are a thing! If you’re interested in one, please let us know! Here’s what they look like:

In case you haven’t seen it yet, October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Take some time this month to set new passwords, add multi-factor authentication, and update software. Or, probably more importantly, remind your parents or kids to. 

Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in October 2004 as a broad effort to help all Americans stay safer and more secure online.

In the same vein, in Wisconsin, we designate October “Keeping Kids Safe Online” month. We also have a podcast offering focused on keeping children safe online run by our Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. It’s called Protect Kids Online (PKO). It helps adults, or those outside the target peer group, to be aware of some of the things that may be going on online to discuss with family and friends to keep children safer. Each episode is about 15 minutes long and discusses different apps/programs or trends that young people may be using. In different episodes, they go through scenarios of things that may, or have, happened to kids and how you can help mitigate risk online. It is recommended listening for anyone who cares for or works with children. 

Have a great day!
