LEEP, formerly known as LEO, is the FBI's Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal. LEEP provides law enforcement agencies, intelligence groups, and criminal justice entities access to beneficial resources. These resources can strengthen case development for investigators, enhance information sharing between agencies, and provide a free secure email account. There is no charge for this service. Our CJIS Security Office has a Special Interest Group (SIG) available to all LEEP members and we invite you to visit us. A brochure for access is available under the Documents menu link.
Free Cyber Security Tips and Newsletter
The Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) offers free Cyber Security Tips and educational newsletters. October is annually designated as National Cyber Security Awareness Month and we encourage everyone to visit MS-ISAC for valuable tips and information.
OUCH! is a monthly security awareness report for end users sent out by the SANS Institute. It shows users what to look for and how to avoid phishing and other scams plus viruses and other malware -- using the latest attacks as examples. Over 460 organizations, large and small, help make this a useful service. More than 100 security officers check each issue for accuracy, and readability before it is distributed to the community.
We hope you will check back each month and stay on top of the latest information regarding these security issues that impact all of us.
