Target: Anyone Who Conducts Any Type of Online Business (E.G. Online Banking)
Purpose: This petition calls for your attention and proof of support by clicking on “sign and tweet” above to raise awareness of cybercrime and encourage education for prevention. According to http://www.crime-research.org “Cybercrime is defined as crimes committed on the internet using the computer as either a tool or a targeted victim.” These tools include: spyware, phishing, adware, spam and unsafe websites that are used for identity theft and fraud. As you can see here at http://vil.nai.com/vil/newly_discovered_viruses.aspx, new malware and virus threats are discovered ALL THE TIME at the McAfee Threat Center.
Action: It is unfortunately obvious that this problem is not going away. In fact it is growing exponentially. The FIRST step is admitting we have a problem that we need to take seriously. The only call to action in this twitter petition is simply tweet to sign and spread the word further. Please click on the “sign and tweet” at http://act.ly/uo. Whether you are a business owner or a stay at home mom, you have the right to education and resources that will protect you from these crimes.
How does just tweeting to sign this act.ly petition help?
The more awareness that we can raise will result in more corporate and private resources to sponsor and initiate education and fraud detection programs. Also, you can visit this link http://www.mcafee.com/us/about/corporate/fight_cybercrime/ for a Global Plan to Fight Cybercrime from McAfee.com.
