SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — September 28, 2012
SiteLock LLC (www.sitelock.com), a leading provider of website security solutions for online businesses around the world, announced today that it has volunteered to be a National Cyber Security Awareness Month champion as part of the company's ongoing commitment to cyber security.
Organized through the National Cyber Security Alliance, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is held in October 2012 and takes the time to examine the importance of maximizing digital security in a world that is becoming more web-based by the day. The premise of NCSAM focuses around "Stop. Think. Connect." which encourages Internet users to stop and take the time to learn about risks, think about the paths of their online actions, and connect only with the confidence that the right steps have been taken to safeguard against dangers. Each week of October, NCSAM focuses on a different cyber security issue, including digital literacy, law enforcement and business website safety.
As an NCSAM champion, SiteLock is planning upcoming events and activities to help reach and educate customers, employees and communities about the importance of maintaining a safe and secure online presence.
"We're extremely excited to be able to participate in National Cyber Security Awareness Month with StaySafeOnline.org," says Neill Feather, President of SiteLock. "Our whole company is focused on teaching others about different online threats and making sure their online data is as safe as possible. We are looking forward to contributing our knowledge of the industry to the cause."
