The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) believes many voices should be heard in the building of a safer and more secure internet. In that spirit, NCSA welcomes others to share their advice on the Stay Safe Online Blog. To ensure that blogs are consistent with the core messaging of NCSA, submissions should adhere to these guidelines.
Blog posts should be:
- Empowering to the reader, encouraging positive action and avoiding fear-based rationale.
- Centered on issues and advice, not pitching products. Discussing a specific type of tool as a way to stay safer online is permissible, but it should not be the focus.
- Consistent with – and incorporating where appropriate – tips and advice from STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™., the global online safety education and awareness campaign. View STOP. THINK. CONNECT.™tips.
- Around 1000 words – a little more or less is fine.
NCSA reserves the right to decline submissions for any reason. Authors are highly encouraged to read the Stay Safe Online Blog to ensure their submissions are appropriate additions.
To have your blog entry included on the Stay Safe Online Blog, propose your blog or submit a draft to [email protected]. Make the subject “Guest Blog Submission,” and include the timeframe in which you would like the blog to be posted. A staff member from NCSA, who will serve as your editor, will typically contact you in 1-2 weeks regarding your submission.
