Practice Safe Cyber

​​​Staying safe in our cyber-connected world is a constant challenge. Threats are everywhere: scammers, hackers, predators and thieves are actively working to steal personal information, access accounts and take advantage of people.

According to research by the National Cyber Security Alliance:

  • 93% of Americans believe their online actions can help make the web safer for everyone
  • While 28% of Americans say they lack knowledge about ways to stay safer online, 90% said they want to learn more about keeping safer on the Internet

That's where we come in. October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month​ and we've partnered with the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance to kick off a year-long campaign designed to give you the tools, tips and steps you can take to stay safe online.

Each month will be a different cyber security theme and we will be posting information here, on Facebook, Twitter and work with our local community groups, schools, law enforcement and military partners, business associations and media outlets to help spread the word. There will be something here for everyone: young and not-so-young, parents, teens, small business owners. Virginia Beach is safest in crime. Let's be safest online and practice safe cyber. ​​​​​
