Tuesday - 8/17/2010, 2:24pm EDT
- When it comes to making everyone more secure on the Web, information sharing is really important. A community plan from San Diego won a top spot in the Department of Homeland Security's 2010 Cyber Challenge, because of the way it got different groups to start working together. Securing Our eCity San Diego was developed by ESET in San Diego. Liz Fraumann, their director of Cybersecurity Awareness and Education, explains the plan and says it's all about collaboration.
