Stop.Think.Connect. These three small words can make a big impact in keeping the internet safe. Here at DHS, we are asking for your help in spreading this message of shared responsibility.
If you'd like to help us in our efforts to make the internet a safe place to be, we encourage you to enter the Stop.Think.Connect PSA Challenge. We are asking people to create and upload videos that will inspire Americans to be vigilant about developing safe online habits.
“We use the Internet every day – for shopping, banking, and staying in touch with friends and family,” said Schmidt. “In today’s digital age, keeping the Internet safe is a responsibility we all share. We need to take time to stop and think before we connect to services on the Internet, share information online, or participate in online communities.”
To submit a video for the Challenge, upload it to the Department of Homeland Security's "Engage" YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/DHSEngage in response to White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt’s video. PSAs must be either 30 or 60 seconds in length, and include the message, “Stop. Think. Connect” and at least one of the following Internet safety tips:
- Keep a Clean Machine
- Protect Your Personal Information
- Connect with Care
- Be Web Wise
- Be A Good Online Citizen
