The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released an article on their Think Before You Post campaign, designed to educate students on the use of social media and how to avoid making poor choices when posting, texting, or emailing thoughts or grievances that could lead to disruptive behavior, including threats. The FBI article stresses that this type of online behavior could result in serious consequences to the individual as well as the community.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users to review the FBI article for information about the Think Before You Post campaign. CISA also recommends users review the CISA Tip on Identifying Hoaxes and Urban Legends for information on the potential dangers of viral emails. CISA encourages users to report suspicious activity to their local FBI field office and to FBI CyWatch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
