Security Awareness Newsletter

Security Awareness Newsletter

"Wow! This is the first security awareness document that our users really like! Thank you, SANS"

That note came from the CISO of an 8,000 employee organization. OUCH! is the world's leading, free security awareness newsletter designed for the common computer user. Published every month and in multiple languages, each edition is carefully researched and developed by the SANS Securing The Human team, SANS instructor subject matter experts and team members of the community. Each issue focuses on and explains a specific topic and actionable steps people can take to protect themselves, their family and their organization. OUCH! is distributed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 3.0 license. You are encouraged to distribute OUCH! within your organization or share with family and friends, the only limitation is you cannot modify nor sell OUCH!.

The OUCH! newsletter, and all the translations, are done by community volunteers. As such, certain languages may be delayed or miss the initial publication date. These will be added as soon as they become available. Be sure to review our other free resources for security awareness programs such as presentations, posters and planning materials on our Resources Page.

OUCH! Team

OUCH! is developed through a rigorous process involving numerous volunteers. Every issue starts as a draft written by a Guest Editor, a Subject Matter Expert in that month's topic. This draft is then intensely reviewed by our experienced editorial board. Once updated, the newsletter is then reviewed and finalized by our team of community reviewers. OUCH is then proofread and translated into multiple languages by our team of translation volunteers. OUCH! is a tremendous community effort and would not be possible without the hard work of the people below.
