ERI to Partner with 'STOP. THINK. CONNECT.' Campaign in Support of Department of Homeland Security
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 tobe 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.
