As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, “a group of Washtenaw County, MI local community leaders, educators, business owners, law enforcement officials and residents formed the Washtenaw Cyber Citizenship Coalition. They’re working to create a digitally aware, knowledgeable and more secure community by providing residents with tools and resources to be good digital citizens.
“Washtenaw Cyber Citizenship Coalition is channeling the community’s efforts through volunteer workgroups in areas such as public/private partnerships, awareness, education and law enforcement. Their strategy is to “share the wheel” whenever possible, instead of recreating it. They’ve collected tips and resources for kids, parents, businesses, educators and crime victims so that citizens can find and access these materials with ease.”
If you’re interested in raising awareness in your own community, staysafeonline.org, stopthinkconnect.org and onguardonline.gov are examples of sites that offer such materials for public use.
