RECOMMENDED – Get On The Email List Of The US CERT / US Homeland Security’s Latest Cybersecurity Threat Updates

AKBearfood a visitor to the blog (from Alaska) recommended; “Get On The Email List Of The US CERT / US Homeland Security’s Latest Threat Update & Info E-Mails”. You can CLICK HERE to setup your email subscription.

Based on AKBearfood’s email name and additional employment information that was provided, it appears he (or she) deals with two potential threats that could impact his (or her) well being: 1) – Becoming food for bears; and,  2) Cyber Security Threats…

AKBearfood provided the following example of the importance of being on the email list:

As an example, the E-Mail link to their website yesterday covered: Apple Releases Security Update for iWork | US-CERT – found at the following URL: https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/current-activity/2017/03/27/Apple-Releases-Security-Update-iWork

The e-mail subscription to the Homeland Security Website is free, and for my work group, helps us keep up with the latest threats and fixes recommended by the USA’s Cyber Security folks – at least the threat info that they release to the public without any “hacking” assistance.

The National Cyber Awareness System is America’s first cohesive national cybersecurity system for identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing emerging vulnerabilities and threats. Managed by the US-CERT, the system relays computer security update and warning information to all users. It provides all citizens—from computer security professionals to home computer users with basic skills—with free, timely, actionable information to better secure their computer systems. The National Cyber Awareness System provides valuable cybersecurity information in the form of Alerts, Tips, and Bulletins.

To take this one step further, I have subscribed to the US-Certs National Cyber Awareness System RSS feed and have posted the feed under the blog’s TECH NEWS (see tab at top of blog).  The very first thing you will see in the feeds I have posted is the most recent alerts and documents as distributed by US-Cert / U.S. Homeland Security

A big THANK YOU to AKBearfood…
