Online protection information:

The federal government and the technology industry have teamed up to create OnGuardOnline.gov, a new site to help computer users guard against phishing and Internet fraud, secure their computers and protect their personal information.

The information at OnGuardOnline.gov includes tips, articles, videos and quizzes. It tells where to report spam or scam and how to sign up for periodic computer security alerts. OnGuard Online's phishing, spyware and spam scams quizzes will help users figure out how savvy they are about computer safety. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is encouraging organizations to share the tips at OnGuardOnline.gov with their employees, customers, members and constituents. To visit the site, go http://www.onguardonline.gov/index.html.
