Today, June 27th, Microsoft received an award from the White House and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the company's work in helping to keep individuals and families safer when they go online for a video my team produced entitled, "Stop. Think. Connect.".

"That three-word phrase is the product of the Stop. Think. Connect. (STC) Messaging Convention, a coalition of more than 30 companies, non-profits and U.S. government agencies and departments, focused on raising awareness and educating the public about Internet safety," said Jacqueline Beauchere, Director of Trustworthy Computing Communications, Microsoft.

In addition to Microsoft, the STC Convention includes AT&T, Costco, Facebook, Google, McAfee, Symantec, VeriSign, Verizon, Wal-Mart, Yahoo! and others.

In the video, the "talking fingers" call out those imperative actions that individuals and families should take to help ensure they get the most from their online experiences.
