McAfee – Online Safety for Kids

As the largest dedicated security company, McAfee has a big opportunity to equip the next generation of computer users to protect themselves from the growing number of cyber criminals. The McAfee - Online Safety for Kids school initiative employs volunteers to help train school-age children and parents on ways to stay safe and secure, as well as maintain good ethics in their online behavior.  Each 30-60 minute session provides students or parents with content and materials based on the STOP.THINK.CONNECT™ National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign. This campaign was developed by the STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ Messaging Convention, a public-private partnership established and led by The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) and National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), of which McAfee is a founding member. As a business partner of McAfee, Sholove is empowered to deliver this message to help create smarter, more responsible Internet users across the nation.
