June is Internet Safety Month

​Internet Safety Month offers the unique opportunity to remind kids with more free time, families gearing up for getaways and brides-to-be to stay safer and more secure online. The kick-off to summer brings increased Internet and mobile device use. We are taking this time to advise digital citizens of all ages to take simple, actionable security measures, understand the consequences of their behavior and enjoy the Internet’s incredible benefits.
  • STOP: Before using the Internet, take time to understand the risks and learn how to spot potential problems.
  • THINK: Take a moment to be certain the path ahead is clear. Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions online could impact your safety, your kids' safety or that of your family.
  • CONNECT: Enjoy the Internet with greater confidence, knowing you've taken the right steps to safeguard yourself, your family and your computer.
The State of West Virginia will be publishing helpful tips and reminders throughout the month. Please visit our Information Security Office of Technology Facebook page and websites for more information.
