Atlanta Cyber Tour

Atlanta Cyber Tour: August 20-23, 2012

Did you know Atlanta ranks fourth in the nation’s riskiest online cities, according to Symantec ? Many of the crimes that occur in real life are now done - or at least facilitated - through the Internet. Human trafficking, credit card fraud and identity theft, embezzlement, and more – all can be and are being done online.

Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility and all Americans must work together to take steps to protect themselves, their families, and their communities against growing cyber threats.

STOP. THINK. CONNECT. invites all residents in the Atlanta area to play an active role in raising awareness and starting a dialogue about cybersecurity issues facing our nation.

CONNECT. will reach representatives from state Homeland Security representatives, as well as law enforcement and others in the physical security field, during a presentation to the Multi State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).
  • STOP. THINK. CONNECT. will participate in the InfraGard National Congress engaging government, law enforcement, and civilian communities in cybersecurity awareness activities and promoting the larger DHS mission to arm citizens with resources and tools needed to protect themselves, their families, and the nation against growing online threats.
