It’s a dangerous world out there on the Web, and the Department of Homeland Security believes that cybersecurity takes a village. DHS, in concert with partners from the private sector, community groups and others, has launched the “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign as a way to promote safe-computing habits through grass-roots education and awareness.
But that’s only part of the story. The new DHS campaign builds on President Obama’s broader initiative to overhaul federal cybersecurity policy, an effort that has seen its share of setbacks. eSecurity Planet has the story.
The Department of Homeland Security has embarked on a nationwide campaign to promote safe computing habits amid rising concerns over Web-borne threats.
The “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign, launched in October, which for the past seven years has been designated national cybersecurity awareness month, focuses on broad-based public education about the evolving nature of online security, offering a host of resources for parents and educators available for download at the campaign’s website.
