miiCard joins STOP. THINK. CONNECT. to create trust online
The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaign is educating internet users about the cyber security and how to improve our safety through online resources. We are proud to be on board with over 2000 companies participating worldwide, some of them including: Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Verisign.
STOP. THINK. CONNECT. is a coalition of industry, government and non-profit organisations, including The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) and National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) the Online Consumer Security and Safety Messaging Convention, focused on educating public on how to be safe and secure online.
The campaign reflects the current need for trust, safety and awareness online. Some recent research by the group found that:
- 96 percent feel a personal responsibility to be safer and more secure online
- 90 percent want to learn more about keeping safer on the Internet
- 54 percent are extremely concerned about loss of personal or financial information online
The STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaign takes a positive approach to empower and educate Internet users to protect themselves online and is closely alligned with our efforts to help create trust online.
