OnGuardOnline: On Target for Your Business

Share This Page

If you’re reading this, then you appreciate that a government site can offer timely information, relevant analysis and — on a good day — maybe even a little wit.  And your business probably has an interest in data protection, computer security or online marketing.  Today, what business doesn’t?  So check out The federal government’s site to help you be safe, secure and responsible online has a new blog, a new look, and a few new features.

The OnGuard Online blog will share cybersecurity news from around the government, spotlight how-to articles and videos, and offer insights from federal officials. Check back regularly for updates, or sign up to get an email when a new post is up.  The blog is two-way communication:  please let us know what topics you’re interested in, and your thoughts on recent developments related to computer security and online safety.

In the past, users told us they value the site because it comes from a trusted source.  In fact, it’s a joint effort of 16 federal agencies, and we’ve tweaked our logo to emphasize that. We’ve also teamed up with the Stop.Think.Connect. campaign, managed by the Department of Homeland Security.

So, how can you use materials? If you’re updating your website or blog, link to us. Editing a company newsletter? “Drop in” an article of interest to your employees. Leading a corporate training session on privacy or cybersecurity? Print publications directly from the site or use the FTC’s bulk order site for free materials to distribute. All the information is in the public domain. That means you’re welcome to copy it, adapt it, post it, or link to it.  We hope you will.


Online security is a very important topic for all of us who use the internet, whether for advertising, or the collection of data for other purposes.
