FDIC Releases Multimedia Presentation to Educate Public on Cybercrime

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) just released an excellent video - geared towards the average user - on how to avoid cybercrime.

Here is what the FDIC has to say about it:

"Identity theft continues to be one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States, and has ranked as one of the top consumer concerns for the past several years. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has produced a multimedia presentation to help consumers protect themselves from identity theft. The presentation provides information on steps consumers should take to secure their computer and protect themselves from identity theft, as well as actions consumers should take if they become a victim of identity theft. Financial institutions are encouraged to make the link available to their customers from their websites. This presentation is hosted by Vodium."

To view the presentation, or order up to 25 of the CD-ROMs, link here.

I watched it from start to finish and was extremely impressed with it. Even my Mom will get the point (she says she doesn't understand what I write about) after watching it.

This is a great tool to share with "anyone and everyone" - who navigates the "sometimes" murky waters of the Internet!
