Security Awareness Tips

Update: See links to other sites at the end of this post. I’ll update as I find them.

If you want a good collection of security tips for yourself or others, check out the www.onguardonline.gov website . It contains  articles, videos, quiz  games, and tutorials about security topics.

The topics and tutorials are good; the videos and quiz games seemed to be geared for the younger generation. Even so, it would be a good link to send to grandparents and those who are curious, but hesitant about technology.

The site even allows you to link to their games from your own site.

Here’s a partial list of what’s available:

Topics

Laptop Security
P2P Security
Social networking sites
VOIP
Wireless security

Videos

Phishy Home
Phishy Office
Phishy Store

These phishing videos are more funny than educational, and maybe a bit silly. But so are many of the people who fall for these ploys.

Games

Invasion of the Wireless Hackers
Friend Finder
Beware of Spyware
Follywood Squares
P2P ThreePlay

Tutorials
