APWG and and LACNIC Sign Agreement to Promote STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Across the Region

LACNIC and the APWG announced today the signing of a collaboration agreement aimed at raising awareness on cybersecurity and informed self-help among Latin American and Caribbean Internet users.

STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ (https://www.stopthinkconnect.org/) is a global cybersecurity awareness campaign that seeks to raise the awareness among the largest possible number of Internet users throughout the world.

The goal of this agreement is to share information on current and future cybersecurity initiatives and developments by members of both groups.

"At LACNIC WARP (Warning, Advice and Reporting Point) we believe it is important to help promote and raise awareness on the importance of using the Internet in a safe way, especially among users in Latin America and the Caribbean," said Graciela Martínez, LACNIC WARP Coordinator

The goal of this campaign is to provide tips and warnings on cybersecurity issues so that the most vulnerable users will have tools to help keep them safer online.

STOP. THINK. CONNECT. principle architect / co-founder and APWG Secretary General Peter Cassidy said, "We look forward to working with LACNIC to expand the campaign's footprint across the nations of our Americas - and to discovering new and potent ways to upgrade the user worldwide."

LACNIC is joining this campaign as part of its efforts to lead the strengthening of An Open, Stable and Secure Internet in the LAC region.
