Maybe you heard about the cybersecurity drill ran last month by the Department of Homeland Security. If not, check out this CNN news story. Then watch the very interesting videos of the drill itself.

Now DHS has announced a National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Challenge.This is a solicitation for ideas from individuals and organizations about how DHS best can clearly and comprehensively discuss cybersecurity with the American public. DHS is asking for proposals to be submitted by April 30, 2010 in Word format. The winners of the challenge will be invited to a special event in Washington, DC in May or June. DHS will partner with the winners during the launch of a National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign in October during National Cybersecurity Awareness month.

It will be interesting to see what comes from this campaign. I am always looking for better ways of communicating and measuring risk and information security.

Thanks for reading & let’s continue to be good network citizens.
