The Stop. Think. Connect.TM Movement is a national public awareness campaign aimed at increasing the understanding of cyber threats and empowering the American public to be safer and more secure online. We each have to do our part to keep the Internet safe with our connected lives 24/7. When we all take simple steps to be safer online it makes the INTERNET a more secure experience for everyone to grow, from ages 2 yrs old – 70 years old.
Our goal is to link arms with the government, other organizations and families to create a national awareness on the importance of Digital Parenting, Digital Literacy, Digital Citizenship and helping to create a safe online environment for our kids and families.
Why? Technology is our REALITY! Just as we strive to keep our kids safe & responsible offline we have to keep them safe & secure online THROUGH CONSISTENT ENGAGEMENT!
Organizations please Request Digital Parenting and Internet Safety Workshops for your school parent engagement, church groups, organization staff and engagements/events also as a vendor for communities fair and school events. We offer a variety of online safety resources, including tip sheets, videos, posters and memes we can share.
Take a moment to STOP and THINK about the places we visit online, the information that we share and the communities in which we participate before YOU CONNECT to the Internet! This message applies to everyone personally and speaks to individual control, but at the same time it extends a bridge from the individual to the global online community.
The research reveals that digital citizens have high interest and personal concerns coupled with a high level of unawareness on cybersecurity issues.
