STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ National Network

To spread cybersecurity awareness across the country to people of all ages and expand the reach of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) STOP. THINK. CONNECT. ™ messages, the Campaign established the National Network, which is comprised of non-profit groups that advocate and promote cybersecurity within their organizations and to their stakeholders.

How to Join

The Campaign is continuing to develop existing partnerships and build new relationships with non-profit organizations serving law enforcement professionals, entrepreneurs, small and mid-sized businesses, critical infrastructure, and individuals of all ages. Non-profit organizations interested in joining or learning more about the benefits of membership can contact the Campaign at
