We're teaming up with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by joining the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaign's National Network of supporting organizations, a special group that pledges to advocate and promote cybersecurity within their organizations. Beginning with the announcement of this partnership in October 2015, which is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, we'll have a continued relationship with DHS to develop resources, provide tips and safety information, and keep cybersecurity a priority in the minds of our members as safe and respectful online citizens. Read the official news release announcing this initiative, and take some time to browse the resources below provided by DHS and other STOP. THINK. CONNECT. supporters.
