October is National Cyber Security Month

Enough is Enough

Enough Is EnoughSM (EIE) recently sent a great reminder for National Cyber Security Month. In 2002, October was named Cyber Security Month and is an annual commemoration of the importance of promoting cyber security and safety. This year's theme is "Our Shared Responsibility." EIE President and CEO, Donna Rice Hughes, helped create a three pronged strategy for Internet safety that involves the public, the technology industry and law enforcement sharing the responsibility to protect children on the Internet (see below.) To get more information and support efforts to protect children online, please go here: https://enough.org/
  
EIE's three-pronged approach of shared responsibility includes:

1. Educating the public, specifically adults about cyber dangers and safety solutions primarily through the media and EIE's Internet Safety 101SM multimedia program resources. The program is the only multimedia program designed to educate, equip and empower caring adults to protect children from pornography, sexual predators and cyberbullies and to keep kids safe and secure on social networking sites, gaming and mobile devices.

2. Encouraging and working alongside the technology industry, including industry giants like Google and Microsoft, to implement viable, family friendly technology solutions and corporate policies and best practices. EIE incorporates cyber security technology solutions into all its Internet Safety 101SM program resources. Additionally, EIE's Internet Safety 101 program is featured as a requisite teaching tool by many of its partners to equip, educate and empower communities with the ability to implement cyber secure practices.

3. Promoting legal solutions that call for aggressive enforcement of existing laws and enactment of new laws to ensure security and safety of children and families. In April, Donna Rice Hughes, was invited as a cyber security expert by the U.S. State Department to educated State Department employees about cyber security and the digital threats kids face, as well as what can be done to prevent cyber crimes against children.
