Statement of FOSI CEO Stephen Balkam on Launch of the Lock Down Your Login Campaign

“The Family Online Safety Institute is proud to be a partner in the “Lock Down Your Login” campaign. FOSI is part of a collaborative effort, joining the the National Cyber Security Alliance, the White House, and more than 30 companies, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations in this initiative. At a time when millions of Americans have had their online accounts hacked and given that identity theft is a major concern for families, many people are still not using strong passwords or multi-factor authentication. This educational initiative will help people take the extra step to make their online accounts more secure. We encourage families to use strong authentication on their email, banking, and social media accounts and to check out lockdownyourlogin.com to learn more.”
