JUNE 03, 2019 — LITTLE ROCK, Ark.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network communications and technology solutions, is recognizing June as Internet Safety Month by partnering with local law enforcement and community organizations to host a series of educational initiatives to remind the public about the importance of being safe while online.
“The Internet is like our homes. It’s a place where we spend a lot of time that enhances our lives. It’s where we find entertainment, shop and buy online, and visit with others, but it’s also a space we want to keep safe and secure, too,” said Tony Spurlin, chief information security officer at Windstream. “We use door locks, alarm systems and situational awareness to keep us safe at home, and we need the same sort of protection online.”
All month long, Windstream will host retail store events and local workshops highlighting safe Internet habits and choices. Internet Safety events kicks off June 3 and will continue the entire month.
During this initiative, Windstream will be encouraging consumers, business owners and IT professionals across the nation to #StayPRIVATE.
