SecureWorld recently revealed 10 security awareness posters that the United States government used in the 1950s and 60s. These could be used in your next awareness campaign.

Now we have 10 more security awareness posters worth sharing.

The retro security posters can help you create a unique cybersecurity awareness campaign, and will certainly lead to curious conversations in the workplace. Especially when your employees find out the National Security Administration (NSA) only released these posters in 2018 after a Freedom of Information request.
