The August edition of OUCH! has been released. For this month we focus on encryption. Far too often we tell people to use encryption to protect themselves and their information, but we do not explain what encryption is, why they should use it or how. Chris Crowley is our Guest Editor for this month and he does an amazing job explaining a complex topic in very simple terms. As always you can download and share the latest version of OUCH from security-awareness.sans.org/ouch-newsletter. Also, do not forget our new OUCH archives, where you can find past editions online at security-awareness.sans.org/ouch-newsletter/archives.
