)-- CORE ID Services, LLC today announced that it has signed on as a partner of STOP. THINK. CONNECT., the global cybersecurity awareness campaign, to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online.
The campaign’s three easy, actionable steps: STOP. THINK. CONNECT. are easy to understand and apply. STOP. THINK. CONNECT. also advises all Internet users to take security measures, understand the consequences of their behavior and actions and enjoy the benefits of the Internet. Here are some additional tips and advice:
Keep a Clean Machine: Keep all critical software—security software, Web browsers and operating systems—up to date.
Protect Your Personal Information: Secure your accounts by making passwords long, strong and unique.
Own Your Online Presence: Set security and privacy settings to your comfort level of sharing.
When in Doubt, Throw it Out: If an email, social network post or text message looks suspicious, even if you know the source, delete it.
Be a Good Online Citizen: Post only about others what you would have them post about you.
CORE ID Services, the provider of ARX-ID Identity Theft Protection, is joining STOP. THINK. CONNECT.’s partner program to help promote messages about the importance of online safety.
CORE ID Service’s President Daniel J. Benish said, “Core ID Services is extremely excited to take part in the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. initiative and to bring awareness to the general public of the dangers that exist online. We feel that the best protection against online fraudsters and identity thieves comes from education, common-sense best practices, and an awareness of what to look for while enjoying the online experience. Through our CORE Concepts newsletter, Facebook page and Twitter feeds, we provide news, tips and other information to help consumers protect their identity from cyber threats. Core ID Services will always strive to be a part of the cyber security solution.”
The campaign’s Partner Program aims to address the worldwide problems of online security and cybercrime by harmonizing messaging across the globe. STOP. THINK. CONNECT. partners gain exclusive access to content, templates and other resources to make it easy for them to co-brand with the campaign.
STOP. THINK. CONNECT. was created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, non-profits and government organizations with leadership provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG).
The campaign was launched in October of 2010 by the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Messaging Convention in partnership with the U.S. government, including the White House.
NCSA, in partnership with the APWG, continue to lead the campaign. The Department of Homeland Security leads the federal engagement in the campaign.
The campaign’s messages were created by the STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Messaging Convention – a public-private partnership established in 2009 to develop the awareness effort. Information about founding STC Messaging Convention members is available at: http://stopthinkconnect.org/about-us/founders/.
