Hastings & Pleadwell is launching a national campaign using social media—YouTube, Facebook, MySpace, and even Twitter to get out our client’s message. We’re excited about this cross-country outreach and we’d love to get your help!
Our client, National Cyber Security Alliance, advances public education year-round promoting cyber security as “our shared responsibility.” We’ve been tasked with getting this message out to college-age adults.
We got Hawai‘i filmmaker, Brett Wagner, to create a web video titled: Don’t be a Billy. “Billy” is a humorous take on a 1940s classroom etiquette film showing what not to do online. Would you check out the video and share it with your friends and networks, especially those connected to higher education (university and college campuses)? The link:
We’d also like to ask you to connect with us on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Hopefully you will learn how to increase your own cyber security in the process.
Thank you in advance for your help and sharing this with your online community. Hawai‘i has a great track record of boosting local talent through online voting, so we’re hoping for a boost from our home state as we attempt to reach every state in the nation with our cybersecurity message for young adults.
