Facebook's "Hacktober" tests employees' security awareness

Since 2004, October has been dubbed "National Cyber Security Awareness Month," and many security-minded individuals, businesses and organizations make it a point to mark it.

For the second time in a row, Facebook has celebrated "Hacktober" by testing their own employees with simulated attacks and threats.

"Webinars don’t exactly fit in well here, so we wanted to do something unique in line with our hacking culture to teach employees about cyber-security. We took the theme of October, fear, and pranks, and created something that is both fun and educational," Facebook Security Director Ryan McGeehan shared with Mashable.
