STAMFORD, Conn. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- We are hooked on technology, and our dependence brings tremendous benefits and enormous risks. Cyber security concerns are not confined to governmental entities or big businesses. Cybercrime is an equal opportunity predator; governments and major companies have vast resources to fight it, but what about the rest of us?
Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) is again joining the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) in supporting October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month and the “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.”™ campaign to increase public awareness of cyber threats.
In old movies, the Calvary came to the rescue. Today, Frontier Secure is your Calvary in the fight against cyber crime. Kelly Morgan, Vice President and General Manager of Frontier Secure notes, "Frontier Secure products offer Internet Security, Cloud-based Backup & Sharing, Premium U.S.-based Tech Support, Parental Controls, Identity Protection and more.” Morgan adds, “It supplements efforts at home and work to protect valuable online information. Think of it this way: We tell our children `Never ride with a stranger;’ the same concept applies to the Internet. Every email is a potential bad character. Don’t open the door when Frontier Secure can guard the gate.”
The DHS website offers some great tips:
Social Media, Video Games, Forums, Chat Sites and more
Use common sense
“It only takes a second to open an email with the potential to wreak havoc in your home and business life,” says Morgan. “Use that second to Stop and Think before you Connect. You’ll be glad you did.”
