October is the month to be aware

I must have missed the "World Security Awareness Month" memo.

I've already pointed out the awareness initiatives in Australia and the UK this month. Apparently the whole of October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month in the US. This one's a US Department of Homeland Security initiative though, not one conjured by an office equipment supplier as a marketing exercise. Here's an article that summarises some of the things going on. For some comic relief, here's what Microsoft suggests that people do.

Without further ado, I officially declare October to be:

Worldwide Don't Let The Bad Guys Steal Your Financial Details To Commit Fraud But Then Again It Doesn't Matter Because There's No Money To Be Stealing Anyway Thanks To Greedy Bankers Awareness Month.

That should cover any other "awareness initiatives" that pop up this month.
