PTG Becomes Stop.Think.Connect. Partner

Palmetto Technology Group, an IT support and managed service provider in Greenville, announced that it has signed on as a partner of STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™, the global online safety awareness, and education campaign. Securing the internet is a responsibility we all share and STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ is simple, actionable advice that everyone can follow to be safer and more secure online.

“As a MSP who provides cybersecurity solutions to hundreds of small and mid-sized businesses, we are thrilled to partner with this national campaign that aligns with our service values of educating users on data security best practices,” said Brendan Blowers, marketing director for PTG.

STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ was launched in October 2010, with messaging created by an unprecedented coalition of private companies, nonprofits, and government and leadership provided by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Anti-Phishing Working Group. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) leads the federal engagement of the campaign. In September 2016, the campaign expanded to include Lock Down Your Login, a STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ initiative led by NCSA and the White House to empower Americans to secure their online accounts.

The STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ campaign encourages everyone to take security precautions, understand the consequences of their online actions and enjoy the benefits of the internet with more peace of mind.

“Every person and organization has a role to play in promoting a safer, more secure and more trusted internet,” said Michael Kaiser, NCSA’s executive director. “We are grateful to our hundreds of STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ partners for their commitment to educating the public and helping build a culture of cybersecurity, online safety, and privacy awareness at home, at work, and in their communities.”

PTG plans to develop and promote STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ resources on its social channels and its monthly technology newsletter. The Microsoft Gold Partner company also plans to increase awareness of this campaign and help people learn about online safety, security, and privacy during its upcoming Fall technology conference in Greenville, South Carolina.  

Everyone can play a role in the greater STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™ effort. Find free tip sheets, posters, videos, infographics, and other useful resources to help you, your family, your colleagues, and your community members are safer and more secure online and learn how you can get involved with the campaign at stopthinkconnect.org.
