Stop.Think.Connect. Friends of the Campaign Program

While the government is taking steps to keep our cyber community safe, the government alone cannot solve the problem. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. The Stop.Think.Connect. Friends Program is an opportunity for YOU to help us spread the word about what we can all do to enhance our safety and security online. The online world is vast, and in order to protect our nation’s cyberspace, we need your help to reach as many Americans as possible—and provide them with information and tools to help raise awareness about cybersecurity and simple, easy-to-understand steps for improving their personal safety and security online.
