Secretary Napolitano Announces Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign Partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect. campaign announced a new partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The campaign will provide Boys & Girls Club with tools and resources in order to raise awareness in teens, young adults and parents about the importance of cybersecurity and online safety.

“In today’s world, Americans can use technology to engage with communities around the globe,” said Janet Napolitano, secretary of homeland security. “Now, more than ever, it is important that all Americans learn to protect themselves online and do their part to ensure that cyberspace is a safe and secure environment for all Internet users.”

Stop.Think.Connect is a national public awareness effort to guide the nation to a higher level of Internet safety and security by educating and empowering the American public to be more vigilant about practicing safe online habits. The campaign encourages Americans to view Internet safety and security as a shared responsibility at home, in the workplace, and in our communities.
