Stop and Think Before Connecting Online

16 Mar 2016 3:35 PM | International Public Safety Association (Administrator)
Did you know that thirty-eight percent of mobile users have experienced mobile cyber crime in 2014? [1]

As we continue to embrace the conveniences of connecting to the Internet on the go, it’s important to protect your information on all of your electronic devices.

Being more aware of cybersecurity risks and taking a few simple steps can make a big difference in our overall online safety. That’s why the International Public Safety Association has joined the Department of Homeland Security’s Stop.Think.Connect.™ Campaign.  Stop.Think.Connect. is a national public awareness campaign aimed at increasing the understanding of cyber threats and empowering you to be safer and more secure online.

Cyberspace touches nearly every part of our daily lives. It includes the broadband networks beneath us and the wireless signals around us, the local networks in our agencies and  schools and hospitals and businesses, and the massive grids that power our Nation.

In our professional and personal lives, as well as in our communities, we depend on the Internet and its vast system of networks to perform daily functions. However, as technology advances, so do the techniques cyber criminals use to gain access to our computer networks.

This new partnership will provide the International Public Safety Association with tools and resources to educate public safety across the country about safer online practices. Whether you are at work on the company network, at home, or on your smartphone, you have a responsibility in creating a safer Internet.
