FTC Wants Online Consumers To Be OnGuard

The Federal Trade Commission has partnered with Microsoft, eBay, the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), and three other government entities to launch a new multimedia, interactive consumer education program to help the public improve their online security practices.

The hub of the initiative is a new website called OnGuardOnline.gov, which carries tips, articles, videos, and interactive activities aimed at educating the public on how to recognize Internet scams; how to do online shopping securely; how to avoid hackers and viruses; and how to deal with spam, spyware, phishing, and peer-to-peer file-sharing.
