NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ERI, the nation’s leading recycler of electronic waste and a leader in the IT asset disposition (ITAD), cybersecurity focused hardware destruction, and data destruction space, has been named a partner organization for the “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” Global online safety awareness campaign.
“STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” was designed to help all digital citizens stay safer and more secure online. The messaging was created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, non-profits and government organizations with leadership provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). The campaign was launched in partnership with the U.S. government, including the White House. NCSA, in partnership with the APWG, continue to lead the campaign. The Department of Homeland Security leads the federal engagement in the campaign.
“Cyber security and online safety are a crucial pert of what we do every day, and we know first hand how vitally important these issues are,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of ERI. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be among the prestigious organizations taking part in this crucial program. We’re proud to be able to share our knowledge and assist the government agencies working on this project. Now more than ever, proper destruction of private digital data has become a crucially important issue. As a society, we must be vigilant in this area, if we are to protect our privacy and the efforts of homeland security.”
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides the Federal Government's leadership for the “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” campaign.
