Details: Story Line Overview for Producers: The video provides a great business, technology or consumer update noting the latest effort by the FTC to protect American’s personal computers and their online information. The push to protect ‘e-America’ is on. Millions of dollars in terms of hardware and information were lost when the infamous, "I Love You" and the "Melissa" viruses ran rampant across the country’s online landscape. Now, a brand new, user-friendly Web site developed by the FTC – www.ftc.gov/infosecurity – features tips for kids, adults and businesses, plus resources and links to other useful sites - all designed with the goal of promoting personal computer security while avoiding safety risks that could possibly damage the nation’s online infrastructure.
