Stop Think Connect Be a Human Firewall

STOP. THINK. CONNECT. is about taking a moment to stop and think about the places we visit online, the information that we share and the communities in which we participate before and while we are connected to the internet.


STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ is the global online safety awareness campaign to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. The message was created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, nonprofits and government organizations with leadership provided by NCSA and the APWG. The campaign was launched in October of 2010 by the STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ Messaging Convention in n partnership with the U.S. government, including the White House. NCSA, in partnership with the APWG, continues to lead the campaign. DHS leads the federal engagement in the campaign.
